Clayborne -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should to be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Clayborne. Boys named Clayborne have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it many years ago: Reaching pos. 1,422 Clayborne ranked higher than ever in 1911. By comparison, there have been 101 years in which the first name Clayborne has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2022. In general, parents name their sons Clayborne only once in a blue moon, so boys and men with this name can consider themselves really special!

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

Clayborne has 9 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 nine letters, the name Clayborne 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.

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.
