The annual report also tracks shifts in popularity year over year. The portion of the report frequently reveals the strange ways pop culture influences the names of a generation.
For instance, in recent years, there has been a significant jump in the number of kids named Khaleesi, after Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones. That's a trend that continues still. Khalessi saw a 56 percent growth in 2016. In 2015, Khaleesi was the 821st most popular name for girls. In 2016, it jumped up to 765th.
On the boy's side, the name that had the biggest popularity spike was Kylo. It saw a growth of 2,368 percent, moving from being the 3,269th most popular name in 2015 to the 901st this year. The rise is undoubtedly tied to Adam Driver's Kylo Ren character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released in December of 2015.
The name is a strange choice because Kylo Ren ...ahem... didn't have a great relationship with his parents.
This isn't the first time Star Wars had an impact on the popularity of a name. Anakin remains a very popular name in spite of how strange it is to name your kid after Darth Vader. In 2016, Anakin was the 701st most popular boy's name, the highest it has ever been.
