For some reason — and we really can’t think why — no one wants to name their babies Donald anymore.

According to 2016 data from the U.S. Social Security Administration released Friday, the name “Donald” hit a new low and decreased in popularity quite dramatically.

Our president’s first name was ranked at just 443 in 2015 but last year it dropped 45 spots to an even more pathetic 488. 

Anyone else catch that 45-point drop? Any connection to Trump being the 45th president? Anyway, The Donald and Donald Jr. can be somewhat reassured that the biggest decrease went to the male name “Jonael” with a 475-point drop. But still, the value of our president’s first name has dropped. He can’t say he has the best name.

TV personality and erstwhile Trump supporter Caitlyn Jenner seems to be having a similar effect, with her name and three variations of its spelling topping the female list of biggest decreases in popularity. The first four slots are filled with “Caitlin,” “Caitlyn,” “Katelynn,” and “Kaitlynn.”

Suffice it to say Donald and Caitlyn didn’t make it into the Top 10 for male or female names. These are the ones that did:

  1. Noah/Emma

  2. Liam/Olivia

  3. William/Ava

  4. Mason/Sophia

  5. James/Isabella

  6. Benjamin/Mia

  7. Jacob/Charlotte

  8. Michael/Abigail

  9. Elijah/Emily

  10. Ethan/Harper

To the 621 kids that were actually named Donald in 2016, don’t worry. He should be long gone before you grow up.
