Fleta is a first name for girls.
Recently, the name Fleta 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 girl in 100,000 has been named Fleta. That means that a girl named Fleta is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her 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 Fleta.
It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Fleta in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 174 women and girls named Fleta, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 174 women and girls named Fleta live in no more than 7 different states, including for example Georgia, Illinois, Kansas, North Carolina and Oklahoma. In all other 43 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Fleta. (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 Fleta lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Fleta 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 Fleta relative to its female population is North Carolina. And even there, only one in 61,256 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Fleta.
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 girls' names: only 1.2% of all common girls' names in the US begin with an F. 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 Fleta 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 if 1.2% of all girls' names begin with an F, this initial letter is significantly less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with F that are quite popular, the most common at present is Frances.
If your name is Fleta 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 Fleta, 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.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Fleta sounds like this:
