Suri Cruise has beaten Harper Beckham to the top spot in a list of the twenty most influential celebrity children.

Suri, the five-year-old daughter of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, and Victoria Beckham's new daughter Harper, five months, were rated in a Daily Beast poll that measured both likeability and media coverage.

Also high on the list were Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's daughter, Shiloh, five, and Jennifer Lopez's three-year-old son, Max Anthony.

Kourtney Kardashian's efforts appear to have paid off as her son Mason Disick, one, placed fifth in the list.

The top ten was rounded out by Britney Spears' son, Jayden Federline, five.

It is surprising to see that in several cases, one sibling has placed far higher than another.

Age certainly doesn't seem to play a role;Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony's son, Max, for example, has come in at number four while his twin sister, Emme Anthony, brings up the rear at number seventeen.

And Shiloh, who places third, trumped sisters Vivienne, two (eighth place) and Zahara, almost seven, who claimed 11th place.

Personality is likely to be a major contributor though. Suri is anything but a wallflower, while Shiloh's quirky, tom-boyish style contributes to the media's constant interest.

Though his parents are A-listers, Moses Martin, five, son of Gwyneth Paltrow and singer Chris Martin, is rarely photographed so his position at twentieth is a surprise. Elder sister, Apple who like her brother seldom appears in the press, didn't make the list.

Influential: Shiloh Jolie-Pitt with Angelina, Brad and brothers Maddox and Pax, beat her siblings to take third place in the list.

Others who featured instead of their siblings were Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards' daughter Lola, six and Harper and Cruz Beckham whose brothers Brooklyn and Romeo were nowhere to be seen.

Babies born this year but who didn't make the cut include Natalie Portman's little boy Aleph, Mariah Carey's twins Moroccan and Monroe and Owen Wilson's son, Robert.

Better luck next year, kids!
