Ishana is a female first name.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Ishana in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Ishana in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Ishana by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Ishana ranks at #5,762. That means there are 5,761 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 Ishana.
Meeting a woman or girl named Ishana is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Ishana can be found in only two: California and New Jersey. No other state currently has residents named Ishana. 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 women and girls called Ishana living in one state or another. (If your name is Ishana and you live outside of California or New Jersey, 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 Ishana is in California, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in California, only 0.00016% of all female residents are called Ishana – that’s just one in 641,175! And even in all the states, California and New Jersey, combined there are only a total of 29 women going by that name. So, if your name is Ishana, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.
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 six letters, the name Ishana is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven 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.
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
If your name is Ishana and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Ishana, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.
Just use American Sign Language!
These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Ishana sounds like this:
