Behold the power of the Netflix queue: Parents binge watching all those popular series seem to be finding lots of inspiration for baby names.

“House of Cards” and “Orange Is the New Black” character monikers are all seeing a boost in popularity in one of the hottest naming trends of the year, according to BabyCenter’s Top 100 Baby Names of 2014 list and survey.

Still, they’re no match for the overall powerhouse choices — Sophia for girls, and Jackson for boys — which are continuing their dominance at the top of the rankings.

“Jackson has staying power and is not a one-hit wonder, and Sophia is arguably the Jennifer of its generation,” said Linda Murray, BabyCenter’s global editor in chief. “It’s clearly entered the baby name hall of fame.”

BabyCenter’s most popular names for girls are:

  1. Sophia
  2. Emma
  3. Olivia
  4. Ava
  5. Isabella
  6. Mia
  7. Zoe
  8. Lily
  9. Emily
  10. Madelyn
