Neola is a first name for girls.
Recently, the name Neola 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 Neola. That means that a girl named Neola 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 Neola.
The first name Neola is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 48 Americans in total bear this name. And these 48 women called Neola are located in only five states: Arkansas, Iowa, Kansas, Mississippi and Nebraska. (However, we have to mention that the official statistics provide the frequency of a name per state only if there are at least 5 women with this sepcific name in that state. It is therefore quite possible that there are one or two more states where someone with the name Neola lives without being listed in official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Neola 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 Neola in relation to it’s female population is Iowa. And yet even there, only one in 77,665 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Neola.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter N is neither particularly common nor particularly rare as a first letter for girls' names: 4.1% of all common girls' names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters of girls' names are A and S, while X and U are the least common initials of girls' names.
With five letters, the name Neola 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.
Thus, it follows that with 4.1% of all girls' names starting with an N, this initial letter occurs about as often as all 26 letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with N that are quite common, the most common in the U.S. at present is Nancy.
If your name is Neola and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Neola, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.
Just use American Sign Language!
These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Neola sounds like this:
