Top Baby Names: Emma, Noah Reign; Caitlyn Plunges Out of Top 1,000

Emma and Noah are the United States' most popular baby names, according to a new report from the Social Security Administration emailed to the Deseret News.

If there's one thing Utah, and Utah County in particular, are known for, it's the abundance of babies buoying up the population each year, making the ranking of particular interest locally.

Every year, the Administration releases a list of the top 1,000 names parents have chosen to name their children, and in 2016, the name Donald dropped from the 443rd spot to 488.

Emma was the most popular name for baby girls for the third year in a row, although its frequency has been slowly declining and it maintains only a narrow lead over second-place Olivia.

Rounding out the top 10 list of baby boys' names in 2016 were Liam, William, Mason, James, Benjamin, Jacob, Michael, Elijah and Ethan.

With baby name trends ebbing and flowing over the decades, the agency also reported the names with the greatest change in popularity for 2016.

Spanish court orders Barca's Neymar to stand trial for fraud
Prosecutors are demanding two years' imprisonment and a fine of €10 million for Neymar , and five years' incarceration for Rosell. DIS received a 40 percent share of the remaining €17.1 million (about R256.2m) that was paid toSantos.

Pop stars also had an effect on boys' names. As a result, today's top names aren't almost as popular as the top names from 50 years ago.

The rise of Harry by 101 places to 679 may have something to do with Zayn's former bandmate Harry Styles, but could also have something to do with a resurgence of older, traditional names, some of which are back in the top 1000 after having disappeared for a while, including Ralph (now at 992), Alistair (at 882), and Howard (at 900).

"Perhaps this can be attributed to Kehlani Parrish, a singer/songwriter who was nominated for a Grammy in 2016", the agency said. Kylo jumped 2,368 spots to No. 901.

Kehlani rose 2,487 spots on the girls' side to number 872, from number 3,359 in 2015.

Toward the end of the movie, Kylo kills his father, Han Solo.
