Aiyanah is a female first name.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Aiyanah in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Aiyanah in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Aiyanah by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Aiyanah ranks at #7,495. That means there are 7,494 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 Aiyanah.
Meeting a woman or girl named Aiyanah is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Aiyanah can be found in only three: California, Illinois and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Aiyanah. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Aiyanah living in one state or another. (If your name is Aiyanah and you live outside of California, Illinois or Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Aiyanah is in Texas, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Texas, only 0.00010% of all female residents are called Aiyanah – that’s just one in 1,005,026! And even in all the states, California, Illinois and Texas, combined there are only a total of 24 women going by that name. So, if your name is Aiyanah, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.
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.

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.
If your name is Aiyanah 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?

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...
