Kylo Origin and Meaning

The name Kylo is a boy's name meaning "narrow spit of land".

The original Kyle has sparked many variations, including Kylie, Kyler, and Kylo, after Kylo Ren, the villain played by Adam Driver in the seventh Star Wars movie, released in December 2015.

.Kylo, which takes on the fashionable o ending, is a name exclusively for those who don't mind crossing to the dark side. It debuted on the US Top 1000 in 2016 -- and indeed, was the year's fastest rising boys' name.

Now, though, Kylo is off its peak. Its fortunes may be connected to the character and the film, at least in the near term.
