The first name 
Helayna

Helayna is a female first name.

Helayna – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Helayna in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Helayna in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Helayna by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Helayna ranks at #8,763. That means there are 8,762 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Helayna.

Helayna -
at home in California and Texas

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Helayna, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in California and Texas. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if tehre are at least five people with that name living there – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Helayna living in one state or another (if your name is Helayna and you live outside of California and Texas, 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 2,241,104 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Helayna. So, if your name is Helayna it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Helayna already makes you special.

Helayna has 7 letters 
and begins with an H

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter H is quite rare as a first letter for girls' names: only 1.7% of all common girls' names in the US begin with H. 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 seven letters, the name Helayna has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight 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.

Therefore: As 1.7% of all girls' names begin with an H, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Interesting detail: of all the names that begin with an H, Helen is the most common.
