The first name 

Geary is a first name for boys.

Geary – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Geary 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 Geary. That means that a boy named Geary 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 Geary.

In relation to the number of residents, the most men and boys with the first name Geary live in Oklahoma – here, one in 17,154 bears this name.

Geary has 5 letters 
and begins with a G

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter G is not really common as a first letter for boys' names: only 2.8% of all common boys' names in the US begin with G. 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 five letters, the name Geary 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 2.8% of all boys' names beginning with a G, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are boys' names with G that are quite popular, the most common at present is George.

Other names with

If you take all the letters in the name Geary – G, e, a, r and y – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Garey or others.
