The first name 

Darice is a female first name. In very rare cases it is also used for boys.

Darice – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Darice has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Darice. That means that a girl named Darice is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Darice.

Darice -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Darice in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 200 women and girls named Darice, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 200 women and girls named Darice live in no more than 7 different states, including for example California, Hawaii, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota. In all other 42 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Darice. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Darice lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Darice and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Darice relative to its female population is Hawaii. And even there, only one in 88,259 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Darice.

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.
