Don't call me Caitlyn: Baby name plunges in popularity

Don't call me Caitlyn: Baby name plunges in popularity

Noah and Emma are extremely popular names for newborns. The Social Security Administration has released the data on what Americans named their babies in 2016, and at the top, it looks nearly exactly the same as past year.

The Social Security Administration compiles the baby names list is based on the names that parents in the USA chose for their babies born in 2016.

It was Noah's fourth consecutive year at the top of the list of male names, and Emma's third on the female side. In general, she said, parents don't want to give their children names that might attract controversy.

Only one new name cracked the top 10 for both boys and girls this year, and that's Elijah - making its way to the top ten for the first time ever.

The second biggest jumps were for the names Royalty (for girls) and Creed (for boys), with pop culture playing a big role in overall baby name popularity.

Though individual state rankings haven't been released yet, you can check out how your super special baby names stack up on a national level with the 2016 rankings, released to media outlets Friday. She was named an artist to watch and clearly new parents agree her star is rising. As a result, today's top names aren't almost as popular as the top names from 50 years ago. Perhaps this can be attributed to Kehlani Parrish, a singer/songwriter who was nominated for a Grammy in 2016. Other names from the 2015 film The Force Awakens that moved up were Finn and Leia.

For girls, the name Kehlani jumped from 3,359 in 2015 to 872 in 2016. Debuting in the top 1000 at 901 is Kylo, as in Kylo Ren. But the older participants would have none of it.
