The first name 
Raychel

Raychel is a female first name.

Raychel – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Raychel in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Raychel in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Raychel by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Raychel ranks at #7,953. That means there are 7,952 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Raychel.

Raychel -
special from day one

In fact, the name Raychel hardly fits the trend of first names for girls. Between 1976 and 1999, young parents changed that a bit. For many years, Raychel wasn't given at all (or at least less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), but by 1995, the name was more popular than ever. Although the name never ranked higher than position 1,832, 69 parents chose it in 1995 as a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Raychel, you were already special when you were born - and you did your best to become a trendsetter.

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

Raychel has 7 letters 
and begins with an R

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter R is neither particularly common nor particularly rare as a first letter for girls' names: 4.1% of all common girls' names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of girls' names are A and S, while X and U are the least common initials of girls' names.

With seven letters, the name Raychel has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight 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, it follows that if 4.1% of all girls' names start with an R, this initial letter occurs about as often as all 26 letters on average. And maybe interesting to know: Rebecca is the girls’ name starting with R, which is the most common of all.
