The first name 

Arlyne is a female first name.

Arlyne – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Arlyne has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Arlyne. That means that a girl named Arlyne is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Arlyne.

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

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Arlyne 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 361 women and girls named Arlyne, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 361 women and girls named Arlyne live in no more than 9 different states, including for example California, Connecticut, Illinois, Iowa and Minnesota. In all other 40 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Arlyne. (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 Arlyne lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Arlyne 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 Arlyne relative to its female population is Wisconsin. And even there, only one in 62,079 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Arlyne.

Arlyne has 6 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 six letters, the name Arlyne is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. 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.
