The first name 

Devona is a first name for girls.

Devona – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Devona 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 Devona. That means that a girl named Devona 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 Devona.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Devona -
swimming against the tide

If your name is Devona your parents may be very proud to let their daughter swim against the tide: The name Devona never ranked higher than position 1,110 in our statistics, and for many years not a single parent had the creative idea of naming their daughter Devona. But something caused mothers and fathers in 1970 to choose the name more often than usual - only compared to the rest of the time, of course. You probably still won't find many children named Devona because that was several decades ago - unless, of course, you have some very creative parents in the neighborhood.

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

2022 - looking for Devona?

In 2022, for example, it was not given once in the entire U.S. - or, to be more precise, it was given at most four times, because names given less than five times in one year are not included in the official statistics. So if you know someone named Devona who was born in 2022, please let us know - we would be very interested in hearing about it so that we can provide you with even more accurate statistics.

Devona has 6 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 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.

With six letters, the name Devona is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. 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 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.
