Did Caitlyn Jenner Kill "Caitlyn" As A Popular Baby Name?

Caitlyn Jenner would be shocked if any of her children came out as transgender.

A Republican supporter who supported Mr Trump in last year's USA election, Jenner said she was disappointed the new president had overturned guidance allowing transgender students to use school toilets matching their gender identity.

After celebrating the arrival of her 11th grandchild, she said it was fun to think that new additions to the family will only have met her following her gender transition.

Speaking to Australia's Today show, she explained: "I love Kimberly, I think she's a wonderful person but, well, to be honest with you, I really haven't talked to her in a long time".

"Caitlyn had an unbelievable night and when she won her award the room went insane", they said.

Her step-daughter, now married to rapper Kanye West, then kept the secret quiet for another two years, without ever bringing it up again, Jenner said. Bosses at US agency Social Security released their annual list of the most popular baby names from 2016, along with a list of the names that have fallen most drastically in popularity.


Caitlyn Jenner isn't good for much, but it looks like she's managed to officially end the reign of one of the most popular names in girl history.

As the AP notes, the name Hillary dropped out of the list's top 1,000 spots in 2009 and hasn't returned, while Donald dropped 45 spots a year ago to No. 488.

The name Caitlyn has plummeted in popularity with parents since it was chosen by Caitlyn Jenner.

"I don't know", Jenner replied.

"Even parents who are huge Donald Trump supporters are unlikely to name their child Donald", Wattenberg added. The other names falling most were all variations of Caitlin with slightly different spellings - Caitlyn, Katelynn and Kaitlynn.

After the "Star Wars" movie was released, Wattenberg said she asked a focus group of people who had seen the movie whether any of the character names would become popular.
