The first name 

Mayeli is a female first name.

When two girls called Mayeli meet...

… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Mayeli is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 3 out of 100,000 girls have been named Mayeli. In the SmartGenius ranking, Mayeli is #3,042 on the list of most common girls names. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Mayeli.

Mayeli -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Mayeli did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Mayeli seemed to be more popular than ever in 2021. Although the name never ranked higher than #2,121, 75 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Mayeli, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

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

Mayeli in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Mayeli a few times. Among all newborn girls it ranked #2,325 - with a total of 67 baby girls. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving girls with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

at home only in a few regions of the USA

And yet even there, only one in 68,326 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Mayeli.

Mayeli 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 Mayeli 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.

Other names with 
M, a, y, e, l and i

If you take all the letters in the name Mayeli – M, a, y, e, l and i – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Mailey or others.
