Star Wars, Kylo Ren, Fastest Growing Baby Name in USA

Considering Star Wars is one of the world’s biggest cultural phenomenons, it’s no surprise to learn the long-running franchise provides inspiration to parents on the hunt for baby names. That those parents would opt to name their newborn after a villain – and (spoiler) murderer of one of the series’ best-loved characters – comes as more of a surprise. But sure enough, Kylo is the fastest-growing boy’s name in the US. The Social Security Administration has released its annual list and jumping 2,368 spots to 901 is Kylo, the character played by Adam Driver. It ended at 3,269 in 2015.
