Emma and Noah again top the list of the most popular baby names in the United States.

The most popular name in a given year would receive the rank of "1".

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.

The most popular 21st century names for girls before 2014 were Sophia, Isabella and Emily. And if furry babies are more your thing, here is the AKC's list of the top dog names of 2016.

Each year, the list reveals the effect of pop-culture on naming trends. The agency first started creating the baby name list in 1997, with names dating back to 1880.

For girls, the name Kehlani jumped from 3,359 in 2015 to 872 in 2016. Music fans will recognize Kehlani from artist Kehlani Parrish, and Star Wars fans will remember Kylo from "The Force Awakens". She was nominated for a Grammy in 2016 for her album "You Should Be Here".

Meanwhile, names such as Caitlin, Caitlyn, Katelynn and Kaitlynn were among the fastest dropping names, according to the Associated Press.

"It was inevitable, " said Laura Wattenberg, founder of BabynameWizard.com.

The drop comes a year after Caitlyn Jenner announced her new name and gender. "Caitlyn was already falling in popularity".

Both Kehlani and Kylo rose in the top 1,000.

The Social Security Administration is able to share the ranking because parents provide children's names when they apply for Social Security cards.
