The first name 

Megha is a female first name.

Megha – one in 100,000!

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 #5,340. That means there are 5,339 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.

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Megha -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Megha 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), Megha seemed to be more popular than ever in 2001. Although the name never ranked higher than #2,021, 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 Megha, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

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

Megha in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Megha a few times. Among all newborn girls it ranked #5,090 - with a total of 21 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.

Megha -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

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 and Pennsylvania. In all other 42 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 47,288 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Megha.

Megha 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 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.
