The first name 

Caedon is a male first name.

Caedon – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Caedon in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Caedon in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Caedon by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Caedon ranks at #6,812. That means there are 6,811 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 Caedon.

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

Caedon -
something very, very special - even in his home state Texas!

If you’re looking for someone named Caedon, you might want to head to Texas. Why Texas of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no men or boys named Caedon living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few men and boys named Caedon living in one state or another, but in any case the name is extremely rare. (If your name happens to be Caedon and you live outside of Texas, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in Texas, the name Caedon is not really that common – there are only 21 men and boys with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00017% of all male residents of Texas – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!

Caedon has 6 letters 
and begins with a C

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter C is a frequent initial letter for boys’ names. This is because 5.2% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D.

With six letters, the name Caedon 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.

With 5.2% of all boys' names that begin with a C, this first letter is thus much more common than the average of all letters. And which boys’ name beginning with C do you think is the most common in the US? The answer is... Charles.
