The first name 

Aivy is a first name for girls.

Aivy – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Aivy in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Aivy in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Aivy by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Aivy ranks at #6,266. That means there are 6,265 more common girls 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 Aivy.

Aivy -

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Aivy, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in . However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if tehre are at least five people with that name living there – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Aivy living in one state or another (if your name is Aivy and you live outside of , we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know, so we can refine our statistics even further). Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 596,517 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Aivy. So, if your name is Aivy it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Aivy already makes you special.

Aivy has 4 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 four letters, the name Aivy is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four 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.
