Finding the perfect baby name isn't the easiest thing for a parent to do.

Organizations like the United States Social Security Administration have been tracking names given to infants in the United States since the late 1800s.

Earlier this year, we told you about the hottest names (so far) of 2016, but what about the names that are becoming less popular?

The SSA tracks that information, too.

The organization looked at names in the top 1,000 baby names for boys and girls and looked at the biggest decreases in new babies with the name between 2014 and 2015.

Some of the names made the list over their unique spellings, others for their association with groups that have risen on the terrorism scale.
