The first name 

Dontez is a first name for boys.

Dontez – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Dontez in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Dontez in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Dontez by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Dontez ranks at #5,031. That means there are 5,030 more common boys 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 Dontez.

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

Dontez -
special from day one

In fact, the name Dontez hardly fits the trend of first names for boys. Between 1976 and 1999, young parents changed that a bit. For many years, Dontez wasn't given at all (or at least less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), but by 1991, the name was more popular than ever. Although the name never ranked higher than position 1,642, 44 parents chose it in 1991 as a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Dontez, you were already special when you were born - and you did your best to become a trendsetter.

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

Dontez - originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the rare name Dontez a few times. Among all newborn boys, it ranked 10,408, for a total of 5 babies. The name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it didn't appear at all for a many years. As Dontez seems to be a bit more popular in the middle of the 20th century, it proves to remain a great rarity in 2022.

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

The first name Dontez is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 296 Americans in total bear this name. And these 296 men are located in only three states: Michigan, Missouri and Ohio (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 men with this name in the state. So, if your name is Dontez and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Dontez in relation to it’s male population is Ohio. And yet even there, only one in 43,254 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Dontez present.

Dontez 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 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 six letters, the name Dontez 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 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.
