Maybel – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Maybel in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Maybel in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Maybel by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Maybel ranks at #7,853. That means there are 7,852 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer.

to discover about the name

Maybel has 6 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 six letters, the name Maybel 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.

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.
