The first name 

Maliq is a male first name.

Maliq – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Maliq in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Maliq in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Maliq by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Maliq ranks at #4,360. That means there are 4,359 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 Maliq.

at home only in a few regions of the USA

So, if your name is Maliq 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 Maliq in relation to it’s male population is Virginia. And yet even there, only one in 202,208 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Maliq present.

Maliq 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 particularly popular initial letter for boys’ names – 6.2% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for boys’ names are J and A.

With five letters, the name Maliq 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.

That means that with 6.2% of all boys' names that begin with an M, this first letter is much more common than the other letters on average. If you are now wondering which boys’ name with M is the most common... the answer is Michael.
