The fastest growing name choice for newborns has taken a different twist. Every year it has been a battle between Emma and Sophia for the top spot.

But now, it's a name for a little boy that's taking off in popularity. And we think it's because of a Star Wars villain.

The name that most people are giving to boys right now is Kylo. The assumption is it's after Kylo Ren, the Sith Lord in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

On the girl's side, the name Kehlani is becoming a rage. We don't know what to attribute that to.

The top names in recent years for boys have been Noah, Liam, William, Mason and James. For the girls, Emma, Olivia, Ava, Sophia and Isabella have been the top five.
