Pryce is a first name typically given to boys, but in rare cases also used as a girls name.
… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Pryce is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 3 out of 100,000 boys have been named Pryce. In the SmartGenius ranking, Pryce is # 2,117 on the list of most common boys names. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Pryce.
In not even one in five states you will find more than 4 men and boys with the name Pryce. This first name might not be completely unknown, but in the entire United States, there are about 144 Americans who bear this name. And these 144 men and boys named Pryce live in no more than 9 different states, including for example California, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Michigan. In the other 41 states, there are either none or less than a handful boys and men with this name (to explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five men with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Pryce lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Pryce 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 boys and men named Pryce relative to its male population is Texas. And even there, only one male in 166,932 would raise his hand if you asked, who is called Pryce.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter P is quite rare as an initial letter for boys' names: only 1.5% of all common boys' names in the US begin with P, which means that this initial occurs only about half as often as the other letters on average. But P is by no means the rarest initial. While X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names, the most common first letters of boys' names are J, A and D.
With five letters, the name Pryce 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.
From this follows that if 1.5% of all boys' names begin with a P, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Incidentally, of the comparatively few boys' names that begin with a P, Paul is currently the most common.
If your name is Pryce 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 Pryce, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.

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.
