We planted these trees a couple years ago, and want to plant more, but do not remember the name of them. It is fast-growing. The exact name would be very helpful. Does anyone know what it is called? Thank you!

It reminds me of Chamaecyparis species (Cypress) but I'm not really sure.
We have many listed here in our database: https://garden.org/plants/sear... with photos for comparison but hopefully someone will recognize it right away and be able to give you an exact ID.

Does it have any seed pods? Can you post a photo of the bark? It reminds me of a cypress also.

You could show your photos to the nursery you purchased them from.

Green Giant Arborvitae is a possibility and is fast growing.

Here's our database entry for Arborvitae (Thuja 'Green Giant') which is also a possibility.
