The first name 

Damar is a first name typically given to boys, but in rare cases also used as a girls name.

Damar – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Damar in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Damar in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Damar by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Damar ranks at #4,268. That means there are 4,267 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 Damar.

Damar has 5 letters 
and begins with a D

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter D is a quite popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 8.5% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters J and A are more common for boys' names.

With five letters, the name Damar 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.

Therefore: As 8.5% of all boys' names start with a D, this initial letter occurs nearly 2.5-times as often as all 26 letters on average – and the most common one of all the boys’ names starting with D is David.
