The first name 

Elijha is a male first name.

Elijha – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Elijha in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Elijha in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Elijha by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Elijha ranks at #5,679. That means there are 5,678 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 Elijha.

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 Elijha 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.
