Gradyn -
something very, very special - even in his home state Pennsylvania!

If you’re looking for someone named Gradyn, you might want to head to Pennsylvania. Why Pennsylvania of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no men or boys named Gradyn living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few men and boys named Gradyn living in one state or another. But, in any case the name is extremely rare. (If your name happens to be Gradyn and you live outside of Pennsylvania, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in Pennsylvania, the name Gradyn is not really that common – there are only 5 men and boys with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00006% of all male residents of Pennsylvania – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!
