Kyron was one of the many baby names that entered the top 1,000 for the first time in 2010:
- 2012: 170 baby boys named Kyron
- 2011: 234 baby boys named Kyron [rank: 887th]
- 2010: 261 baby boys named Kyron [rank: 821st]
- 2009: 99 baby boys named Kyron
- 2008: 96 baby boys named Kyron
What gave it a boost that year?
A little boy from Oregon named Kyron Horman. Not long after being dropped off at school on June 4, 2010, he went missing.
The ensuing search for Kyron became one of the largest ever in Oregon’s history, “with more than 1,300 people from Oregon, Washington and Northern California looking for the boy.” His mysterious disappearance and the massive search effort kept Kyron’s name in the national news for several months straight in mid-2010.
Sadly, he still has not been found.
