Mickel – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Mickel in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Mickel in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Mickel by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Mickel ranks at #6,848. That means there are 6,847 more common boys 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 Mickel.
