The first name 

Khaliq is a first name for boys.

Khaliq – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Khaliq in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Khaliq in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Khaliq by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Khaliq ranks at #4,025. That means there are 4,024 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 Khaliq.

Khaliq -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Khaliq did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Khaliq seemed to be more popular than ever in 2003. Although the name never ranked higher than #2,318, 40 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Khaliq, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

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

Khaliq in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Khaliq a few times. Among all newborn boys it ranked #4,483 - with a total of 18 baby boys. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving boys with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

Khaliq -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Khaliq is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 96 Americans in total bear this name. And these 96 men are located in only four states: New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Virginia (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 men with this name in the state. So, if your name is Khaliq and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Khaliq in relation to it’s male population is New York. And yet even there, only one in 199,470 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Khaliq present.

Khaliq has 6 letters 
and begins with a K

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter K is a real popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 7.9% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters J, A and D are more common for boys' names.

With six letters, the name Khaliq 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 if 7.9% of all boys' names start with a K, this initial letter occurs more than twice as often as all 26 letters on average. Interesting detail: of all the boys’ names that begin with a K, Kenneth is the most common.
