The first name 
Mey

Mey is a female first name.

Mey – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Mey has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Mey. That means that a girl named Mey is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Mey.

Mey -
at home in

Meeting a woman or girl named Mey is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Mey can be found in only : . No other state currently has residents named Mey. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Mey living in one state or another (if your name is Mey and you live outside of , we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further). Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Mey is in California, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state.

And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 5 women with that name. So, if your name is Mey, chances are you will never meet another woman with your beautiful first name.

Mey has 3 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 only three letters, the name Mey is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three 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.
