If you're a Kyle, take a flight to Texas.

This weekend, the largest eponymous gathering will take place in Kyle, Texas, in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest eponymous gathering of the year.

To break the record, they would need 2,326 Kells or more.

So, if you have a friend named Kyle, tell him to pack his bags.

The current title belongs to the town of Kupres in Bosnia and Herzegovina, where 2,325 people named Ivan gathered on July 30, 2017.

Last year, people from 49 states gathered in Kyle, totaling 1,490 people. It was the closest the city had come to breaking the record, but the group was still 836 kels behind.

Hopefully this is the year they finally make it happen.

This brings us to the world's most famous Kells, but there's actually not as much as you might think.

On this side of the water, Manchester City and England right-back Kyle Walker is the biggest attraction.

On the other side of the Atlantic, you have twin peaks and fall out Stars Kyle McLachlan and Kyle Chandler aka Coach Taylor Friday night lights.

Kyle's Party is part of the city's Kyle Fair, which includes a carnival, live music and several contests for the best margaritas, tacos and ribs.

Margaritas and fajitas? I wish I was Kyle!

The event is free to attend and Kells of all ages are welcome. Participants must show identification, and a parent or guardian can vouch for minor participants.

To be eligible for the Guinness World Records™ attempt, all participants' names must be “Kyle” (that's how it's spelled). Iterations of “Kyle” such as Kyler, Kiel or Kylee are not accepted. Middle and last names will not be accepted.

The Kyle Party will kick off the official Guinness World Records Countdown at Kyle Arena on Saturday at 1 p.m. All Kells must report and register by 12:30 p.m. to be counted in the official tally.
