Don't call me Caitlyn: Baby name plunges in popularity

And if you have a hunch it has something to do with Caitlyn Jenner, you're not alone.

"I downplayed it a lot because at that time I was trying to get back into life because I had hidden away in a house for six years - I have a tendency to do that, even today".

Baby naming experts said parents have long used biblical names for their children.

A Republican supporter who supported Mr Trump in last year's United States election, Jenner said she was disappointed the new president had overturned guidance allowing transgender students to use school toilets matching their gender identity. "It's a process", the 67-year-old said.

The first thing people noticed was the awkward way Eamonn greeted Caitlyn, with one fan taking to Twitter to ask, "Why didn't he kiss her like he does with every other female guest?"

Si Woo Kim was bogey-free until he hit a shot off the bulkhead and into the water on the par-5 16th and missed a short par putt. Spieth's last hope ended with a tee shot that bounced at the back of the island-green 17th and into the water.

"I have been asked that question quite a bit, to be honest with you - over the next year I'm looking into it".

The transgender star confessed that Kim is heartbroken by the way her mother Kriss Jenner has been affected by the tell-all book. The initial shock of it was tough, but that's what parents go through and I understand that. "Now it is suddenly controversial", Wattenberg said. According to the Social Security Administration's annual list of the most popular baby names, the four names out dropped off were all variations of Caitlin Jenner's name including Caitlin, Caitlyn, Katelynn, and Kaitlynn.

"Last year, it fell 542 spots - the biggest drop of any name - to No. 1,151". "I don't know. That's something over the next year I'm going to take a serious look at and any place that I can do a good job and get the most accomplished, that's what I'll wind up doing".

The former Olympic athlete and reality television star says she is considering stepping into the political arena because of U.S. President Donald Trump's "disappointing" policies regarding LGBT+ rights.

Laura Wattenberg, BabynameWizard.com founder and baby name connoisseur, told the Associated Press that Caitlyn and its imitators were already losing steam by the time Jenner joined the club.
