The first name 

Avenir is a male first name.

Avenir – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Avenir in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Avenir in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Avenir by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Avenir ranks at #3,610. That means there are 3,609 more common boys 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 Avenir.

Avenir 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 a very popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 9.0% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letter J is more common for boys' names.

With six letters, the name Avenir 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 9.0% of all boys' names start with an A, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And by the way: Of all the boys' names that start with an A, Anthony is the most common.

Other names with
