First names with Z

Only about 2.1 % of first names in the United States begin with the letter Z…

This means that the initial Z is found much less frequently than average. On average, each letter appears as an initial in about 3.8 % of all names, considering the 26-letter English alphabet. The distribution of initial letters is undoubtedly uneven – after all, some letters occur much more frequently, while others are much less frequent. In the US, the most common initials of first names are A and J, while the letters U and X, on the other hand, are initials for very few names.

In the US, Zachary is currently the number 1 most popular boys’ name to start with a Z, while Zoey is the most popular girls’ name. In second and third place are names such as Zoe, Zara, Zion and Zayden. Far rarer names starting with Z in the US are Zahra or Zeke.
