Social Security Administration releases most popular baby names list

Social Security Administration releases most popular baby names list

Emma has been the most popular name for the past three years. Donald was the 13th-most popular boys name in the country that year.

Emma and Noah again top the list of the most popular baby names in the United States.

Emma, Olivia, Sophia, Isabella, Mia, Charlotte, Abigail, Emily, Harper.

Also, the most drastic climb in name ranking for male births was Kylo, which started at 3,269th and now is 901st, according to the SSA.

For boys, the named that skyrocketed in popularity was Kylo, as in Kylo Ren, a character in the 2015 movie, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

Every year, the list reveals the effect of pop-culture on names - evident from the two names who saw the biggest jump in popularity from 2015 to 2016. Perhaps this can be attributed to Kehlani Parrish, a singer/songwriter who was nominated for a Grammy in 2016.

"It was inevitable. Caitlyn was already falling in popularity".




Wattenberg's theory could be the reason why the name Caitlyn dropped entirely off the list.

The drop comes a year after Caitlyn Jenner announced her new name and gender.

As for other names in the headlines, the data showed Donald, as in President Donald Trump, fell 45 spots past year to No. 488. "Now it is suddenly controversial", she said.

For boys in 2016, that name was Kylo, which rose from 3,359 in 2015 to 901 previous year.

Sorry, Donald, you're not the top dog when it comes to baby names.

The Social Security Administration is able to share the ranking because parents provide children's names when they apply for Social Security cards.
