The first name 

Dhiya is a female first name.

Dhiya – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Dhiya in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Dhiya in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Dhiya by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Dhiya ranks at #6,637. That means there are 6,636 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 Dhiya.

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

Dhiya -
something very, very special - even in her home state Texas!

If you’re looking for someone named Dhiya, you might want to head to Texas. Why Texas of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no women or girls named Dhiya living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few women and girls named Dhiya living in one state or another. But, in any case the name is extremely rare (if your name happens to be Dhiya and you live outside of Texas, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in Texas, the name Dhiya is not really that common – there are only 10 women and girls with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00009% of all female residents of Texas – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!

Dhiya 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 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 five letters, the name Dhiya 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 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.

Other names with
