Baby wearing name tag

When books, movies and TV shows don’t go far enough to inspire unique baby names, some parents are turning to Instagram filters.

Ludwig, anyone?

You may laugh, but naming kids after the tools that make your photos more colorful or moody on the popular app is one of the hottest baby name trends of 2015, according to the annual BabyCenter Baby Names Survey.

“We were a little surprised by this,” Linda Murray, BabyCenter’s global editor in chief, told TODAY Parents.

“(But) there’s this beautiful thing that happens with an Instagram filter. You take these precious moments in your life and it makes them even more beautiful, it enhances them. I think people have just really warm feelings about that and these names come into their consciousness.”
