The first name 

Edwyn is a male first name.

Edwyn – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Edwyn in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Edwyn in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Edwyn by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Edwyn ranks at #4,589. That means there are 4,588 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 Edwyn.

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

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

The first name Edwyn is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 86 Americans in total bear this name. And these 86 men are located in only five states: California, Georgia, Illinois, New York and Texas (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 Edwyn 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 Edwyn in relation to it’s male population is California. And yet even there, only one in 393,934 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Edwyn present.

Edwyn has 5 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 five letters, the name Edwyn 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.

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.

Other names with 
E, d, w, y and n

If you take all the letters in the name Edwyn – E, d, w, y and n – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Dwyne or others.
