How Many Parents Named Their Kids “Kylo” Last Year?

The Social Security Administration officially released its 2016 baby name data, and Star Wars fans are responsible for making Kylo the fastest-growing name in the U.S. According to the data, 238 parents named their sons after the new Star Wars villain last year, although 14,569 opted for Benjamin, some of which presumably could’ve been inspired by Kylo’s real name. The runners up in that category were the equally pop-culture inspired Creed, Benicio, Adonis, Fox, and, shortly thereafter, Zayn.
