On the girls list, Caitlyn took a nose dive, dropping off the top 1000 list from 598 the year before.
The Social Security Administration released its list of 2016's most popular baby names on Friday, along with information on which names are becoming more popular and which are falling out of favor.
The popularity of the name "Donald" for baby boys in the United States fell from 2015 to 2016.
For boys, the top picks are Noah (which is the top boy's name four years running), Liam, William, Mason, and James.
Noah was the most popular boys name for the fourth consecutive year, while Emma was the most popular girls name for the third consecutive year.More news: Pai Proposes Net Neutrality Reversal as Advocates Plot Pushback
The Social Security Administration's website provides lists of the top 1,000 baby names for each year, dating to 1880. For the second half of the 20th century, Jessica, Ashley, Jennifer, Lisa and Mary each had their turns as parents' favorite names for girls.
Without further ado, here are the top 10 baby names of 2016. This year's winners for biggest jump in popularity in the Top 1,000 are Kehlani and Kylo. She was named an artist to watch and clearly new parents agree her star is rising.
"Once parents see that a name is super popular, they are going to start avoiding it", said Jennifer Moss, founder of Babynames.com. Other names from the 2015 film The Force Awakens that moved up were Finn and Leia. For girls, it was Kehlani, as in Kehlani Parrish, a singer and songwriter nominated for a Grammy in 2016. Kehlani jumped 2,487 spots to No. 872. Debuting in the top 1000 at 901 is Kylo, as in Kylo Ren.
The names on the list aren't particularly surprising.
