The first name 

Mohan is a male first name.

Mohan – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Mohan in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Mohan in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Mohan by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Mohan ranks at #6,347. That means there are 6,346 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 Mohan.

Mohan -
at home in California and New York

Meeting a man or boy named Mohan is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Mohan can be found in only two: California and New York. No other state currently has residents named Mohan. 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 men and boys called Mohan living in one state or another. (If your name is Mohan and you live outside of California or New York, 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 Mohan is in California, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in California, only 0.00009% of all male residents are called Mohan – that’s just one in 1,166,548! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 24 men going by that name. So, if your name is Mohan, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.

Mohan 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 particularly popular initial letter for boys’ names – 6.2% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for boys’ names are J and A.

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.

That means that with 6.2% of all boys' names that begin with an M, this first letter is much more common than the other letters on average. If you are now wondering which boys’ name with M is the most common... the answer is Michael.
