'Star Wars' influences top baby names; Caitlyn plunges in popularity

Emma and Noah top the country's baby name list for the third year in a row, according to the report.

For the boys, Noah is now the most popular baby name, with 80 boys born in 2016 with that name.

Some new names made the list this year, including Elijah, which is the first time that name has ever cracked the top 10, according to the report. Liam and Mia were the No. 1 names for boys and girls in the Garden State in 2016, while Noah ranked No. 2 and Emma earned the No. 3, right behind Olivia. Does your baby's name make the cut? At the time of a child's birth, parents supply the name to the agency when applying for a child's Social Security card, thus making Social Security America's source for the most popular baby names.

Justice Department Appoints Robert Mueller as Special Counsel for Russia Investigation
In a tweet President Donald Trump described the situation as "the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history". The Justice Department on Wednesday appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller to lead the investigation.

The Social Security Administration announced Thursday that Emma topped the list in all three states and nationally.

For 2016, Kehlani and Kylo saw the biggest increases.

The force was strong for Kylo in 2016 as he soared 2,368 spots for the boys, from number 3,269 in 2015 to number 901. In 2015, Jackson took the top honor, with Noah finishing that year tied for fourth. Music fans will recognize Kehlani from artist Kehlani Parrish, and Star Wars fans will remember Kylo from "The Force Awakens".
