When two girls called Ahlam meet...

Ahlam -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Ahlam did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Ahlam seemed to be more popular than ever in 2017. Although the name never ranked higher than #2,972, 48 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Ahlam, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Ahlam was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Ahlam in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Ahlam a few times. Among all newborn girls it ranked #3,640 - with a total of 35 baby girls. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving girls with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

Ahlam -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Ahlam in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 200 women and girls named Ahlam, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 200 women and girls named Ahlam live in no more than 6 different states, including for example California, Colorado, Minnesota, New York and Ohio. In all other 43 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Ahlam. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Ahlam lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Ahlam and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Ahlam relative to its female population is Minnesota. And even there, only one in 20,975 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Ahlam.

Ahlam has 5 letters 
and begins with an A

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter A is the most popular first letter for girls’ names. 11.8% of all common girls’ names in the US start with this letter. The second most common first letter in girls' names is S.

With five letters, the name Ahlam 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 11.8% of all girls' names start with an A, this initial letter occurs over three times as often as all other letters on average. And, by the way, of all the girls' names that begin with the letter A, the name Ashley is the most common.
