The first name 

Dee is a unisex first name, but it has been given primarily to boys for a number of years.

Dee is a very rare first name!

At least in the US, the name Dee is extremely rare. Recently, only a handful of babies has been named Dee each year. That means it’s extremely unlikely that a boy or girl called Dee will meet someone with the same name. So, Dee is a very special name! If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Dee.

to discover about the name

Dee has 3 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 particularly popular initial letter for first names. That’s because 6.3% of all common given names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for given names are A, J and K.

With only three letters, the name Dee is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three 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.

With 6.3% of all first names that begin with the letter D, this first letter is much more common than the other letters on average.

If you take all the letters in the name Dee – D, e and e – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Ede.
