Joaopedro is a first name for boys.
Recently, the name Joaopedro 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 Joaopedro. That means that a boy named Joaopedro 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 Joaopedro.
Meeting a man or boy named Joaopedro is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Joaopedro can be found in only three: Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey. No other state currently has residents named Joaopedro. 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 Joaopedro living in one state or another. (If your name is Joaopedro and you live outside of Connecticut, Massachusetts 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 Joaopedro is in Massachusetts, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Massachusetts, only 0.00066% of all male residents are called Joaopedro – that’s just one in 150,929! And even in all the states, Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey, combined there are only a total of 39 men going by that name. So, if your name is Joaopedro, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.
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 nine letters, the name Joaopedro is relatively long compared to other names. In fact, 5.6% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly nine letters. 92% of all first names are shorter, while not even 2.5% of all boys’ and girls’ names use ten or more letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with 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.
If your name is Joaopedro 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 Joaopedro, you can simply say:

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.
