to discover about the name

Edmond -
evergreen, but special

For more than 140 years, parents decide to name their son Edmond annualy. This means that there have been boys named Edmond who witnessed the first Labor Day parade in the U.S. or followed Albert Einstein's career. The name has 'always been there', but never ranked in the top 100, and thus men named Edmond have consistently been special. The name was particularly popular a long time ago in the 19th century. In one particular year, long before the first passenger flight and even before there was the first real radio, parents liked Edmond even more than any other time: in 1883, it holds its present record at rank #198 in the list of the most popular boys' names.

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

How popular was Edmond 2022 among young parents?

Edmond has never been ranked higher than #198. In 2022, he rivaled the 1,778 names that preceded him on the list. In total, 77 boys named Edmond were born in this year. For comparison: 30 years earlier, in 1992, when possibly the parents of the now very young Edmond were born, there have been 110 newborns who received this name.

Edmond has 6 letters 
and begins with an E

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter E is neither particularly common nor particularly rare as a first letter for boys' names: 3.8% of all common boys' names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.

With six letters, the name Edmond 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.

That means that with 3.8%, E as the first letter in boys' names is almost as common as all 26 letters on average - and of all the boys' names that start with an E, Edward is the most common.
