The first name 

Norvel is a first name typically given to boys, but in rare cases also used as a girls name.

Norvel – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Norvel 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 boy in 100,000 has been named Norvel. That means that a boy named Norvel is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name his 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 Norvel.

You won't believe all there is

Norvel -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should to be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Norvel. Boys named Norvel have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it many years ago: Reaching pos. 1,027 Norvel ranked higher than ever in 1906. By comparison, there have been 74 years in which the first name Norvel has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2022. In general, parents name their sons Norvel only once in a blue moon, so boys and men with this name can consider themselves really special!

In years where the graph has no value, the name Norvel was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Norvel -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Norvel is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 42 Americans in total bear this name. And these 42 men are located in only three states: Missouri, Texas and West Virginia (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 men with this name in the state. So, if your name is Norvel and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Norvel in relation to it’s male population is Missouri. And yet even there, only one in 118,690 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Norvel present.

Norvel has 6 letters 
and begins with an N

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: 3.0% of all common boys' names in the US begin with an N. This means that N as the first letter for boys' names is neither particularly common nor rare. The most common first letters of boys' names are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.

With six letters, the name Norvel is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. 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 3.0% of all boys’ names start with an N, this initial letter is slightly less common than all other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are boys' names with N that are quite common in the U.S., the most common at present is Nicholas.

Other names with 
N, o, r, v, e and l

If you take all the letters in the name Norvel – N, o, r, v, e and l – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Lovern or others.
