The first name 
Laurissa

Laurissa is a female first name.

Laurissa – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Laurissa 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 girl in 100,000 has been named Laurissa. That means that a girl named Laurissa is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her 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 Laurissa.

Laurissa -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Laurissa. Girls named Laurissa have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it a few years ago: At No. 3,311 Laurissa ranked higher than ever before in 1987. By comparison, there have been 92 years in which the first name Laurissa has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2022. In general, parents name their daughters Laurissa only once in a blue moon, so girls and women with this name can consider themselves exceptional!

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

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

The first name Laurissa is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 62 Americans in total bear this name. And these 62 women are located in only three states: California, New York and Texas (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 women with this name in the state. So, if your name is Laurissa 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 girls and women named Laurissa in relation to it’s female population is California. And yet even there, only one in 372,823 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Laurissa.

Laurissa has 8 letters 
and begins with an L

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter L is a particularly popular initial letter for girls' names – 6.8% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for girls’ names are A and S.

With eight letters, the name Laurissa is long compared to other names. In fact, 14.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly eight letters. 78% of all first names are shorter, while only 8% of all boys’ and girls’ names use nine letters or even more. 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 with 6.8% of all girls' names that begin with an L, this first letter is much more common than the other letters on average. If you are now wondering which girls' name with L is the most common... the answer is Linda.
