Megha is a female first name.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Megha in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Megha in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Megha by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Megha ranks at #5,360. That means there are 5,359 more common girls 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 Megha.
It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Megha in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 306 women and girls named Megha, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 306 women and girls named Megha live in no more than 7 different states, including for example California, Illinois, New Jersey, New York or Pennsylvania. In all the other states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Megha. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Megha lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Megha and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Megha relative to its female population is New Jersey. And even there, only one in 46,895 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Megha.
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 Megha 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.
If your name is Megha 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...
