Most popular baby names of 2016

They are top the country's baby name list for the third year in a row, according to the report.

The third - and fourth - time's the charm for Emma and Noah. For boys, Alexander fell off the list.

It's followed by Liam, William and Mason. The 2016 list features some of the same names at the top.

During an interview with the Associated Press, Laura Wattenberg, the founder of parenting website BabynameWizard.com, said the name Donald could be losing its popularity because parents generally don't like to name their children after anything that could become shrouded in controversy.

Actor Emma Watson has the most popular girl's name of 2016. It has been rising through the list since 2012, when the first "Hunger Games" film, starring Hemsworth, premiered.

Here is a closer look at the rest of the Top 10. Hillary fell out of the top 1,000 names in 2009 and has not returned.

Creed and Adonis also spiked in popularity for boys in 2016, perhaps linked to the 2015 movie "Creed", in which Sylvester Stallone once again played Rocky Balboa, this time training his boxing rival's son, Adonis Johnson Creed. Kehlani collaborated with Zayn Malik, the former One Direction star and current solo artist, on a song in 2016.

"It's a form of reset for us", said Geoff Healy, the Melbourne-based company's chief external affairs officer. BHP Billiton spins off some of its aluminium, coal, manganese, nickel and silver assets as ASX-listed South32.

The second fastest riser for girls was Royalty. Parents might have been inspired by actress Saoirse Ronan, singer Alessia Cara and actress Ophelia Lovibond or the release of several songs titled "Ophelia".

According to the Social Security Administration, the number of births in 2016 with name Donald was 621, which represented 0.031% of total male births in 2016.

Third time's a charm for the most popular girl's baby name in the US, while the most popular boy's name is on a four-year streak.

"Even parents who are huge Donald Trump supporters are unlikely to name their kid Donald", she added, though there were no major changes in the rankings of the names Donald or Hillary.

In 1950, only five percent of USA parents chose a name for their baby that wasn't in the top 1,000 names By 2012 it was up to 27 percent.
