The first name 
Augustina

Augustina is a female first name.

Augustina – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Augustina in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Augustina in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Augustina by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Augustina ranks at #5,939. That means there are 5,938 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 Augustina.

Augustina -
a special name with a long history

Augustina is not one of the particularly popular names, in fact in some of the last 142 years it has been given so infrequently that it doesn't even show up in our statistics (here a name is only recorded in those years in which it was given to newborns at least five times). This was, for example, most recently the case in 1910, where the name Augustina was given at most four times in the entire USA, perhaps even less or not even once. (If you are Augustina and were born in the USA in 1910 please get in touch with us!) Before that, however, there was a time when the name was significantly more popular - way back in the last century, Augustina even made it into the top 1,000 of our SmartGenius statistics of the most popular girls' names: In 1903, it ranked on position 913 - a popularity it has never reached again since then.

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

Happy Birthday - 16 girls named Augustina celebrate their second birthday this year

Even though the popularity of the name Augustina has fluctuated in the past and there were years when the name was almost not chosen at all by expectant parents, it has without question arrived in the 21st century. In 2021, the name was given a remarkable 16 times by young parents to their newborn daughters and thus landed at #6,090 in the SmartGenius ranking of the currently most popular girls' names. Nevertheless, the name is still so rare that the 16 girls named Augustina, who are celebrating their second birthday this year, can rightly feel very special, because it is most likely that in their kindergarten they will be the only children who turn around when someone calls 'Augustina'.

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

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Augustina 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 612 women and girls named Augustina, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 612 women and girls named Augustina live in no more than 6 different states, including for example California, Florida, Illinois, New Mexico and New York. In all other 44 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Augustina. (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 Augustina lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Augustina 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 Augustina relative to its female population is Texas. And even there, only one in 24,622 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Augustina.

Augustina has 9 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 nine letters, the name Augustina is relatively long compared to other names. In fact, 5.6% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly nine letters. 92% of all first names are shorter, while not even 2.5% of all boys’ and girls’ names use ten or more letters. 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.
