'Star Wars' influences top baby names; Caitlyn plunges in popularity

There is only one new name in the top 10 this year-Elijah, the first time he has ever reached the list of 10.

If you think names on the agency's original list are completely outdated - think again.

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. So, the higher the number, the less popular the name.

Although the name Donald is apparently growing in dislike among parents, the name Hillary didn't even make it on the Social Security Administration most recent list, which was released Friday. 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.

Garcia makes hole-in-one at Players' famed island-green 17th
Garcia, 37, said he knew he hit "a good shot", but it could have gone "three yards past" the hole, or done "anything". I felt like I was a little bit up in the clouds, and when I woke up, I was four-over after six (holes).

This can be attributed to Kehlani Parrish, a singer/songwriter who was nominated for a Grammy in 2016, while Kylo hails from the character of Kylo Ren in the 2015 film "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Names after political figures overall didn't seem to be big hits with parents. In general, she said, parents don't want to give their children names that might attract controversy.

But a warm welcome is in order for the name Elijah, which broke into the list for the first time.

The drop comes a year after Caitlyn Jenner announced her new name and gender. Only 621 boys were named Donald in 2016. John is now No. 28 and Mary has fallen to No. 127.

Neither Hillary nor Hilary appeared among the top 1,000 names in 2016. As a result, today's top names aren't almost as popular as the top names from 50 years ago.
