The first name 
Damara

Damara is a female first name.

Damara – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Damara in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Damara in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Damara by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Damara ranks at #7,620. That means there are 7,619 more common girls 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 Damara.

Damara -
at home in California, New York and Texas

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Damara, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in California, New York and Texas. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if tehre are at least five people with that name living there – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Damara living in one state or another (if your name is Damara and you live outside of California, New York and Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know, so we can refine our statistics even further). Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 294,941 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Damara.

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter D is quite common as an initial letter for girls' names. To be precise, 5.6% of all girls' names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of girls' names, by the way, are A, S and M.

Therefore: As 5.6% of all girls' names start with D, this initial letter occurs much more often than all 26 letters on average. And maybe interesting to know: of all the names that begin with a D, Dorothy is the most common.
