It should come as no surprise that with the popularity of The Force Awakens, Star Wars baby name are really hot right now.

In 2015, Kylo was at No. 3,774, but this year the name was up to No. 1,165. In 2015 Lando ranked at No. 11,231. This year the name jumped to No. 2,126. Han and Leia also jumped, and Lucas remains in the Top 5, despite George Lucas having pretty much lost all of his geek cred these days.
