The first name 
Flemming

Flemming is a first name for boys.

Flemming – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Flemming has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one boy in 100,000 has been named Flemming. That means that a boy named Flemming is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name his whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Flemming.

Flemming -
at home in

If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Flemming, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in . However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few men and boys called Flemming living in one state or another. (If your name is Flemming and you live outside of , we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 888,836 boys and men would turn around if you called out the name Flemming. So if your name is Flemming, it’s very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Flemming already makes you quite special.

Flemming has 8 letters 
and begins with an F

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter F is quite rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 1.5% of all common boys' names in the US begin with an F. By the way, the most common first letters of boys' names are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.

With eight letters, the name Flemming is long compared to other names. In fact, 14.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly eight letters. 78% of all first names are shorter, while only 8% of all boys’ and girls’ names use nine letters or even more. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

Therefore: As 1.5% of all boys' names begin with an F, this initial letter is significantly less common than the other letters on average. However, individual boys' names with F are really popular, the most common currently being Frank.
