706 individuals named Kyle gathered in Texas, falling short of a world record.

In the suburbs of Austin, Texas, a city attempted to break the world record for the largest gathering of people with one name. However, despite 706 Kyles turning up at a park in Kyle, Texas, their attempt fell short. The current record is held by a town in Bosnia that gathered 2,325 people named Ivan in 2017 according to Guinness World Records.

The Gathering of the Kyles has been an annual event in Kyle for several years now, and this year was no exception. Despite not being a popular name in the U.S., ranking 416th among male names in 2023 according to the Social Security Administration, the community in Kyle continues to strive for recognition and achievement. Last year, there were 1,490 participants at the event held in Kyle’s fast-growing city located just 37 miles south of Austin.

Despite their efforts falling short this time around, the City of Kyle provided footage of the event captured by a drone for all to see. The City’s inhabitants are determined to continue striving for this impressive record in future events.
