The first name 

Isham is a male first name.

Isham – a very rare name!

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

Isham -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Isham a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Parents chose this name most often in 1880 – at that time, it landed at position 467 with 13 newborn boys receiving this special first name. This was the last peak in a world without airplanes, computers, rock music, or even television. Because Isham is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always think to give their child this unusual name. So, if your name is Isham, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, your name is what makes you stand out these days!

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

Isham -
at home in Georgia and North Carolina

If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Isham, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in Georgia or North Carolina. 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 Isham living in one state or another. (If your name is Isham and you live outside of Georgia and North Carolina, 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 327,564 boys and men would turn around if you called out the name Isham. So if your name is Isham, it’s very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Isham already makes you quite special.

Isham has 5 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 quite rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 1.5% of all common boys' names in the US begin with an I. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.

With five letters, the name Isham 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 if 1.5% of all boys' names begin with an I, this initial letter is significantly less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are boys' names with I that are quite popular, the most common at present is Isaac.

Other names with 
I, s, h, a and m

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