The first name 

Darik is a male first name.

Darik – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Darik 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 boy in 100,000 has been named Darik. That means that a boy named Darik is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name his 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 Darik.

Darik -
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 be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Darik. Boys named Darik have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it a few years ago: At No. 2,268 Darik ranked higher than ever before in 1983. By comparison, there have been 95 years in which the first name Darik 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 2021. In general, parents name their sons Darik only once in a blue moon, so boys and men with this name can consider themselves exceptional!

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

Darik -
at home in

If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Darik, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in . However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few men and boys called Darik living in one state or another. (If your name is Darik and you live outside of , 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 1,258,070 boys and men would turn around if you called out the name Darik. So if your name is Darik, it’s very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Darik already makes you quite special.

Darik 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 Darik 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.
