The Social Security Administration released their annual list of the most-popular baby names, and for the first time since 1948, Michael is NOT in the top five.  It finished number six and was bumped out by . . . Mason.

The popularity of Mason is probably thanks to Kourtney Kardashian, since that’s what she named her baby boy.
