Is there a word for..

 Is there a word for the "occurrence in which, after learning a new word/definition/name, the word seems to appear everywhere" ? 
I'm pretty sure most of you have experienced this and I'm really curious if there is a name for this strange 'event' and if anyone has a good explanation for your mind tricking you into thinking that the word is 'haunting' you.

(I guess this is similar to "Murphy's Law")
