The first name 

Jamez is a first name for boys.

Jamez – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Jamez in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Jamez in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Jamez by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Jamez ranks at #4,928. That means there are 4,927 more common boys 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 Jamez.

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

Jamez -
at home in Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio

If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Jamez, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in Georgia, North Carolina or Ohio. 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 Jamez living in one state or another. (If your name is Jamez and you live outside of Georgia, North Carolina and Ohio, 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 293,219 boys and men would turn around if you called out the name Jamez. So if your name is Jamez, it’s very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Jamez already makes you quite special.

Jamez has 5 letters 
and begins with a J

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter J is the most popular first letter for boys’ names. 10.1% of all common boys’ names in the US start with this letter. The second most common first letter in boys’ names is A.

With five letters, the name Jamez 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 10.1% of all boys’ names start with a J, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And, by the way, of all the boys’ names that begin with the letter J, the name James is the most common.
