Adric is a male first name.
There’s a good chance that a boy named Adric in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Adric in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Adric by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Adric ranks at #4,473. That means there are 4,472 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Adric.
If you’re looking for someone named Adric, you might want to head to Texas. Why Texas of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no men or boys named Adric living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few men and boys named Adric living in one state or another. But, in any case the name is extremely rare. (If your name happens to be Adric and you live outside of Texas, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in Texas, the name Adric is not really that common – there are only 10 men and boys with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00008% of all male residents of Texas – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter A is a very popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 9.0% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letter J is more common for boys' names.
With five letters, the name Adric is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
That means that if 9.0% of all boys' names start with an A, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And by the way: Of all the boys' names that start with an A, Anthony is the most common.
If your name is Adric and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Adric, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.
Just use American Sign Language!
These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Adric sounds like this:
