Evalena is a female first name.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Evalena in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Evalena in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Evalena by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Evalena ranks at #6,275. That means there are 6,274 more common girls 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 Evalena.
The first name Evalena is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 34 Americans in total bear this name. And these 34 women are located in only five states: California, Kentucky, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 women with this name in the state. So, if your name is Evalena 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 girls and women named Evalena in relation to it’s female population is Missouri. And yet even there, only one in 258,303 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Evalena.
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 seven letters, the name Evalena has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight 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 3.9%, 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 Evalena 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...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Evalena, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
