Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter L is quite common as an initial letter for first names. To be precise, 5.5% of all given names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of given names, by the way, are A, J and K.
With nine letters, the name Lexington 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.
Therefore: As 5.5% of all first names start with an L, this initial letter occurs much more often than all 26 letters on average.
If your name is Lexington 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...
