People became less likely to name their daughters Caitlyn because of Caitlyn Jenner


Since the Olympic winner opened up about being a transgender woman and chose to be named Caitlyn, less and less parents want their daughters to have the same name, however it may be spelled. According to data from the Social Security Administration, ‘Caitlyn’, ‘Caitlin’, ‘Katelynn’ and ‘Kaitlynn’ all dropped in popularity and the parents brand this name as controversial. The founder of, Laura Wattenberg, said: “It was inevitable. Caitlyn was already falling in popularity. Now it is suddenly controversial.” The body released the most popular 1,000 baby names from 2016. The top name for the third year in a row was Emma, followed by Olivia, Ava, Sophia and Isabella. Jenner previously revealed that she is happy to be a role model for tans people although transition should be an individual matter for nobody else to be responsible for it. “I don’t want to be responsible for people going through this. Because when you transition it’s not just you. It’s your entire family, it’s every loved one you have. It is a huge, major, major decision in your life,” she said.
