The first name 
Malai

Malai is a female first name.

Malai – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Malai in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Malai in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Malai by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Malai ranks at #10,059. That means there are 10,058 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. Of all Americans currently living, not even one in 100,000 would answer if you shouted out the name Malai.

Malai has 5 letters 
and begins with an M

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter M is a quite popular first letter for girls' names. That’s because 8.5% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters A and S are more common for girls' names.

With five letters, the name Malai 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.

Therefore: As 8.5% of all girls' names start with an M, this initial letter occurs nearly 2.5-times as often as all 26 letters on average – and the most common one of all the girls’ names starting with M is Mary.
