The first name 

Meyah is a first name for girls.

Meyah – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Meyah in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Meyah in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Meyah by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Meyah ranks at #5,231. That means there are 5,230 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 Meyah.

You won't believe all there is

Meyah -
at home in California and Texas

Meeting a woman or girl named Meyah is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Meyah can be found in only two: California and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Meyah. 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 Meyah living in one state or another (if your name is Meyah and you live outside of California or Texas, 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 Meyah is in California, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in California, only 0.00014% of all female residents are named Meyah – that’s just one in 710,139! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 32 women with that name. So, if your name is Meyah, chances are you will never meet another woman with your beautiful first name.

Meyah 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 Meyah 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.

Other names with 
M, e, y, a and h

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