SLIDESHOW: Top baby names for 2016 revealed

SLIDESHOW: Top baby names for 2016 revealed

The Social Security Administration released their annual list of the top baby names of the past year, and Emma and Noah topped the list for the third and fourth times respectively.

As for the boys, William rose two spots, replacing Mason as the third most popular name.

Every year around Mother's Day, the Social Security Administration publishes statistics on the popularity of baby names for the previous year, based on their comprehensive records of births in the US. Kylo jumped 2,368 spots to No. 901.

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".

It's one reason few parents name their children after politicians. Only 621 boys were named Donald in 2016.

In defeating the Pirates 11-4 before 21,911 in Chase Field Friday night, their offensive dominance of the opposition continues. Arizona's David Peralta doubled twice and made a diving grab in right field to rob Andrew McCutchen in the first inning.

Last year, it fell 542 spots - the biggest drop of any name - to No. 1,151. The name Adonis just happens to be the number four fastest riser on the list for boys.

Though individual state rankings haven't been released yet, you can check out how your super special baby names stack up on a national level with the 2016 rankings, released to media outlets Friday. In fact, Hillary hasn't landed in the top 1,000 baby names ranking since Trump's opposing candidate ran for the White House for the first time in 2008. However, there has been a decided shift from the New Testament to the Old.

"Once parents see that a name is super popular, they are going to start avoiding it".

Its popularity has been waning in recent years, however.
