The first name 

Isha is a female first name.

Isha is a well-known but special name!

Isha is a well-known name in the US, but is still special. It is currently only given to every ten thousandth girl, and therefore ranks at 1,438 in the SmartGenius statistics. This means there are 1,437 girls names that are more common, but also tens of thousands that are much rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Isha.

Isha -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Isha did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Isha seemed to be more popular than ever in 2002. Although the name never ranked higher than #1,020, 196 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Isha, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Isha was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Isha in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Isha a few times. Among all newborn girls it ranked #1,230 - with a total of 172 baby girls. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving girls with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

at home in half of America

In relation to the number of residents, the most women and girls with the first name Isha live in New Jersey – here, one in 11,375 bears this beautiful name.

Isha has 4 letters 
and begins with an I

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter I is pretty rare as an initial letter for girls' names: only 1.7% of all common girls' names in the US begin with an I. 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 four letters, the name Isha is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four 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 since 1.7% of all girls’ names begin with an I, this initial occurs only about half as often as the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are of course single names that begin with an I, which are quite popular

Other names with 
I, s, h and a

If you take all the letters in the name Isha – I, s, h and a – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Isah or others.
