The first name 

Orbin is a first name for boys.

Orbin – a very rare name!

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

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

Orbin -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Orbin a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Chosen by 5 parents, the name was given most frequently in 1904 – at that time, it ranked #989. 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 Orbin 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 Orbin, 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 Orbin was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Orbin -
at home in Kentucky and Tennessee

Meeting a man or boy named Orbin is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Orbin can be found in only two: Kentucky and Tennessee. No other state currently has residents named Orbin. 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 Orbin living in one state or another. (If your name is Orbin and you live outside of Kentucky or Tennessee, 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 Orbin is in Kentucky, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Kentucky, only 0.00163% of all male residents are called Orbin – that’s just one in 61,258! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 56 men going by that name. So, if your name is Orbin, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.

Orbin 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 Orbin 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 n

If you take all the letters in the name Orbin – O, r, b, i and n – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Brion or others.
