The first name 

Qwest is a male first name.

Qwest – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Qwest 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 Qwest. That means that a boy named Qwest is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name his whole life.

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

Qwest has 5 letters 
and begins with a Q

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The Q is really rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 0.8% of all common boys' names in the US begin with a Q. Only the letters X and U are even rarer as the first letter of boys' names. By the way, the most common initial letters for boys’ names are J and A.

With five letters, the name Qwest 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 as 0.8% of all boys' names start with a Q, all other letters occur on average more than five times as often as the Q. Of the comparatively few boys' names that begin with a Q, most are also not very common - the most popular currently is the one of Mr. Tarantino.
