I don't think we know for sure yet, but it could be possible since Disney stated they would barrow from previous source materials when they relaunched the cannon.
In order to give maximum creative freedom to the filmmakers and also
preserve an element of surprise and discovery for the audience, Star
Wars Episodes VII-IX will not tell the same story told in the
post-Return of the Jedi Expanded Universe. While the universe that
readers knew is changing, it is not being discarded. Creators of new
Star Wars entertainment have full access to the rich content of the
Expanded Universe. For example, elements of the EU are included in
Star Wars Rebels. The Inquisitor, the Imperial Security Bureau, and
Sienar Fleet Systems are story elements in the new animated series,
and all these ideas find their origins in roleplaying game material
published in the 1980s.
Some examples they have borrowed from so far include Poe's Dameron's Black One X-Wing Fighter that may be based on an abandoned Star Wars toy featured in a 1985 Catalog, Thrawn has come back into the focus through Star Wars Rebels (Along with new books and comics), and even Ben Solo has physical features and is in an antagonistic role like that of Jacen Solo, only not a Sith, with Ben Skywalker's first name (obviously both named for Uncle "Ben"), and whose mask is a similar shape to Darth Raven's...
A bit of speculation looking at "Kylo Ren" and The Knights of Ren
Kylo is in line with a Star Wars-y sounding name, although usually last names like Solo, Holdo, or even a little stretch, Erso. Granted all of these are new additions, except for Solo, which we also know was not Han's actual surname name either, which gives Ben and Han some commonality.
In the 2015 Darth Vader Comic series, readers are introduced to a Dr. Cylo, whose been commissioned by Darth Sidious to make human-hybrid beings taught in the Jedi arts with Dr. Cylo insisting that they can mimic the Force just as well, if not better, than a Force Sensitive being. Being mad at Vader after the destruction of the first Death Star, he wants Cylo's force-mimickers to defeat and kill Vader, but as Vader demonstrates, they are no match for the power of the Force! Dr. Cylo is then killed, but in a shocking plot twist, readers learn that he can transfer his conscious to another body and that he is now on his fifth one! These ideas could easily juxtapose Kylo Ren's and Snoke's roles, should Snoke not be dead and have transferred his conscious...It should be noted that in Legends canon, the Emperor was also cloned. This could be seen as another way to preserve oneself, as many of the comics are playing with life extension.
Which brings me to The Knights of Ren. The first thing I thought of outside possibly being a reference to The Seven Samurai, is that the suffix REN fits in the word erRENt, which Star Wars also had their own version of the Medieval Military Order that is now Legends. So one may see them as adventurous knights, making them close to "space pirates", but there could also be a "pun" on errant with errand, since it seems like they may do Snoke's bidding, running errands for him...There could be something here like Snoke promised them this grand exploring life, but perhaps become disillusioned over time, pending on what their actual current existence is, since we have not seen them except for in a vision-flashback.
Another word that comes to mind is REN-aissance, which could imply a revival or more literally a "rebirth". The new trilogy starts out with the title of the first film, The Force AWAKENS and does imply some yet to be disclosed Force-related cycle cosmology.
Taking that further, many have speculated that The Knights of Ren may be an advancement or evolution of Acolytes of the Beyond since we know Snoke cares about the Skywalker bloodline and may have helped to cultivate Ben's obsession with Darth Vader. Kylo Ren specifically tells Rey that the blue lightsaber belongs to him and later, the two are so equally strong with the force they split the lightsaber apart!
