Dwayna is a first name for girls.

Dwayna – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Dwayna 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 Dwayna. That means that a girl named Dwayna is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life.

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 Dwayna 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.
