In the entire United States there are currently a total of 348 women and girls named Eshal, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 348 women and girls named Eshal live in no more than 10 different states, including for example California, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois and Maryland. In all other 40 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Eshal. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Eshal lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Eshal and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Eshal relative to its female population is Texas. And even there, only one in 103,320 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Eshal.
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 girls' names: 3.9% of all common 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, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.
With five letters, the name Eshal 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 3.9%, E as the first letter in girls' names is almost as common as all 26 letters on average - and of all the girls' names that start with an E, Elizabeth is the most common.
If your name is Eshal and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
