in Disney, Entertainment, Star Wars

We all know Star Wars has a following of millions of extremely dedicated fans. So it should come as no surprise that people are naming their babies Leia, Rey and Kylo.

In fact, Huffington Post put together a list of the 30 most popular Star Wars-inspired baby names in recent years. Some names like Luke, Ben and Finn were excluded from the list because it’s unclear whether or not those names were chosen because of Star Wars, but names like Jedi and Anakin made the list for obvious reasons.

The full list (plus the number of babies born in 2016 with that name) includes:
