The first name 

Caven is a male first name.

Caven – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Caven in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Caven in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Caven by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Caven ranks at #6,598. That means there are 6,597 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. Of all Americans currently living, not even one in 100,000 would answer if you shouted out the name Caven.

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

Caven -
something very, very special - even in his home state Oklahoma!

If you’re looking for someone named Caven, you might want to head to Oklahoma. Why Oklahoma of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no men or boys named Caven 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 Caven living in one state or another. But, in any case the name is extremely rare. (If your name happens to be Caven and you live outside of Oklahoma, 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 Oklahoma, the name Caven is not really that common – there are only 5 men and boys with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00023% of all male residents of Oklahoma – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!

Caven has 5 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 five letters, the name Caven 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.

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.
