"Caitlyn" dropped in popularity more than any other baby name in 2016, according to Social Security's annual list of most popular baby names.

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

The name's popularity plummet comes one year after the former Bruce Jenner announced her new name and gender, and founder of BabynameWizard.com Laura Wattenberg said "it was inevitable."

"Caitlyn was already falling in popularity," she told Time. "Now it is suddenly controversial."

In fact, the four girl names that dropped the most and fell completely out of the top 1,000 were Caitlin, Caitlyn, Katelynn and Kaitlynn.

But Wattenberg does not think the drop in popularity is as much a result of homophobia as it is parents not wanting to attract controversy for their children.

"Even parents who are huge Donald Trump supporters are unlikely to name their child Donald," she said. "In part, we just want to avoid controversy in picking names."

The list, released Friday, named Emma as the most popular name for girls for the third straight year, followed by Olivia, Ava, Sophia and Isabella. Noah topped the list of most popular boy names for the fourth year in a row and was followed by Liam, William, Mason and James.
