OK, so there seem to be a few names on the list of rare baby names that are a little … dark. Really though, if you’re going to go with a Star Wars villain, Kylo is way better than Darth. Who wants to call for their kid Darth at a birthday party?! If you set aside the evil association with the guy who had the audacity to kill Han Solo, Kylo is a pretty cool name! But it’s hard to separate Star Wars Kylo with regular Kylo. The movies played a huge role in the sudden popularity of this name, too. It debuted on the list of the Top 1000 Baby Names in 2016, and was the fastest rising boy’s name of that year. Coincidence? We think not.
