The first name 

Orbie is a male first name. In some cases it's also given to girls.

Orbie – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Orbie 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 Orbie. That means that a boy named Orbie 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 Orbie.

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

Orbie -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Orbie a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Chosen by 6 parents, the name was given most frequently in 1906 – at that time, it ranked #916. It thus experienced its last peak in a world without internet and cell phones, even before the first personal computer was built. (Do you remember? Those were those big boxes that couldn't even begin to do what a simple robot vacuum cleaner can do today). Since Orbie is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always come up with the idea of giving their baby boy this unusual name. So, if your name is Orbie, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, you stand out with your name these days!

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

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

The first name Orbie is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 81 Americans in total bear this name. And these 81 men are located in only three states: Alabama, Kentucky and Oklahoma (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 Orbie 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 Orbie in relation to it’s male population is Alabama. And yet even there, only one in 41,129 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Orbie present.

Orbie has 5 letters 
and begins with an O

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter O is pretty rare as an initial letter for boys' names: only 1.8% of all common boys' names in the US begin with an O. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.

With five letters, the name Orbie 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.

That means that since 1.8% of all boys’ names begin with an O, this initial occurs only about half as often as the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are of course single names beginning with an O, which are quite popular

Other names with 
O, r, b, i and e

If you take all the letters in the name Orbie – O, r, b, i and e – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Robie.
