Alayshia is a first name for girls.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Alayshia in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Alayshia in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Alayshia by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Alayshia ranks at #5,229. That means there are 5,228 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 Alayshia.
The first name Alayshia is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 35 Americans in total bear this name. And these 35 women are located in only four states: Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina and Texas (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 women with this name in the state. So, if your name is Alayshia and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most girls and women named Alayshia in relation to it’s female population is Louisiana. And yet even there, only one in 135,173 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Alayshia.
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 eight letters, the name Alayshia is long compared to other names. In fact, 14.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly eight letters. 78% of all first names are shorter, while only 8% of all boys’ and girls’ names use nine letters or even more. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with 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.
If your name is Alayshia 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 Alayshia, you can simply say:
