Although the band have split with everyone busy releasing their own music or becoming parents themselves, their fans have remained loyal and you know, named their newborn children after them.

According to figures released by America's Social Security Administration, Zayn is the tenth fastest-rising boy's name with Harry and Louis also rising in popularity over the last few years.

We didn't expect people to be naming their children after Zayn Malik but hey, it's a pretty cool name so we can't blame them.

It's not really surprising that the boys made it onto the list as their popularity soared throughout their early years and has seemed to flourish even more as they release their solo work.

Although Zayn was able to crack the top ten, the top two fastest-rising baby names for boys have definitely surprised us.

The second fastest-rising baby name for boys is Creed, most likely named after the boxer in the movie of the same name, with Kylo taking out number one.

Looks like naming your sons after a space villain is pretty cool these days.

The fastest-rising baby names for girls seem to be relatively normal this time around.

Kehlani has taken then number one spot with Saoirse in third place and Ophelia coming in fourth.

Although, Royalty is the second fastest-rising baby name for girls at the moment and we have NO idea where that's come from...
