Nesta is a very rare first name!

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Nesta has 5 letters 
and begins with an N

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: 3.4% of all common first names in the US begin with an N. This means that N as the first letter for given names is neither particularly common nor rare. The most common initial letters of first names are A, J and K, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of first names.

With five letters, the name Nesta 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, if 3.4% of all first names start with an N, this initial letter is slightly less common than all other letters on average.
