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.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Isham -
at home in Georgia and North Carolina

Meeting a man or boy named Isham is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Isham can be found in only two: Georgia and North Carolina. No other state currently has residents named Isham. 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 or North Carolina, 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 Isham is in North Carolina, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in North Carolina, only 0.00031% of all male residents are called Isham – that’s just one in 324,303! And even in all the states, Georgia and North Carolina, combined there are only a total of 20 men going by that name. So, if your name is Isham, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.

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.
