Caitlyn No Longer A Popular Baby Name

Parents are no longer naming their babies Caitlyn these days, according to a new report. The Social Security Administration, which issues an annual list of the most popular baby names, said on Friday that Caitlyn is no longer one of the most popular baby names. According to the annual list put out by the Social Security Administration, Caitlyn and three of its variations — Caitlin, Katelynn, and Kaitlynn — drastically dipped out of the top 1,000 most popular baby names.

But one expert said the drop in popularity may not be related to Caitlin Jenner's decision to come out as transgender two years ago. Laura Wattenberg, founder of BabyNameWizard, said the name was already dropping in popularity even before it became controversial. 

Also noted in the report,  the name Hillary dropped out of the list’s top 1,000 spots in 2009 and hasn’t returned, while Donald dropped 45 spots last year to No. 488.
