The first name 

Anila is a female first name.

Anila – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Anila in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Anila in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Anila by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Anila ranks at #4,964. That means there are 4,963 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 Anila.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Anila -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Anila 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), Anila seemed to be more popular than ever in 2021. Although the name never ranked higher than #4,362, 26 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Anila, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

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

Anila in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Anila a few times. Among all newborn girls it ranked #4,947 - with a total of 22 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.

Anila -
at home in Florida and New York

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Anila, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in Florida and New York. 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 Anila living in one state or another (if your name is Anila and you live outside of Florida and New York, 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 491,023 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Anila. So, if your name is Anila it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Anila already makes you special.

Anila 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 Anila 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.

Other names with

If you take all the letters in the name Anila – A, n, i, l and a – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Anali or others.
