The first name 

Elric is a male first name.

Elric – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Elric in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Elric in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Elric by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Elric ranks at #3,939. That means there are 3,938 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer.

Elric -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Elric. Boys named Elric have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it a few years ago: At No. 2,945 Elric ranked higher than ever before in 1983. By comparison, there have been 100 years in which the first name Elric has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2008. In general, parents name their sons Elric only once in a blue moon, so boys and men with this name can consider themselves exceptional!

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

Elric 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 Elric 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, l, r, i and c

If you take all the letters in the name Elric – E, l, r, i and c – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Cirel or others.
