One baby name has plummeted in popularity more than any other in the United States, according to the Social Security Administration’s annual list of the most popular baby names.
In 2016, the name Caitlyn took a nose-dive in the rankings, a year after Caitlyn Jenner claimed her new name and announced her gender transformation.
The Social Security Administration releases an annual list of the top 1,000 baby names. The 2016 list reveals that four names plunged the most—all variations of the same name: Caitlin, Caitlyn, Katelynn and Kaitlynn.
Emma topped the 2016 list of baby names for girls for the third year in a row, followed by Olivia, Ava, Sophia and Isabella.
Noah took top honors for the top boy name for the fourth year in a row, followed by Liam, William, Mason and James.
