KYLE, Texas (NEWSnet/AP) — How many people named Kyle can fit in one place? For one Texas city, not enough.

Another attempt by the city of Kyle, Texas, to break the world record for the largest gathering of people with one name fell short Saturday, despite 706 Kyles of various ages arriving at a park in the suburb of Austin. In 2023, the event known as “Gathering of the Kyles” drew 1,490.

The crown is held by a town in Bosnia that got 2,325 people named Ivan together in 2017, according to Guinness World Records.

Kyle is not among common names in the U.S., according to Social Security Administration. The most recent count has Kyle ranked 416th among male names. By comparison, Ivan ranks No. 153.
