Gerrod is a first name for boys.
Recently, the name Gerrod 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 Gerrod. That means that a boy named Gerrod 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 Gerrod.
Meeting a man or boy named Gerrod is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Gerrod can be found in only three: California, Florida and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Gerrod. 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 Gerrod living in one state or another. (If your name is Gerrod and you live outside of California, Florida or Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Gerrod is in Florida, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Florida, only 0.00022% of all male residents are called Gerrod – that’s just one in 454,709! And even in all the states, California, Florida and Texas, combined there are only a total of 22 men going by that name. So, if your name is Gerrod, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.
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 six letters, the name Gerrod is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven 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 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.
If your name is Gerrod 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...
