The first name 

Rehan is a male first name. In very rare cases it is also used for girls.

When two boys called Rehan meet...

… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Rehan 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 Rehan. In the SmartGenius ranking, Rehan is #2,115 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 Rehan.

Rehan -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Rehan did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Rehan seemed to be more popular than ever in 2008. Although the name never ranked higher than #1,680, 81 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Rehan, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

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

Rehan in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Rehan a few times. Among all newborn boys it ranked #2,567 - with a total of 43 baby boys. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving boys with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

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

In not even one in five states you will find more than 4 men and boys with the name Rehan. This first name might not be completely unknown, but in the entire United States, there are about 539 Americans who bear this name. And these 539 men and boys named Rehan live in no more than 9 different states, including for example California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and New Jersey. In the other 40 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 Rehan lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Rehan 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 Rehan relative to its male population is New York. And even there, only one male in 50,861 would raise his hand if you asked, who is called Rehan.

Rehan has 5 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 quite common as an initial letter for boys’ names. To be precise, 5.2% of all boys' names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D.

With five letters, the name Rehan 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.

Therefore: As 5.2% of all boys' names start with R, this initial letter occurs much more often than all 26 letters on average. And maybe interesting to know: of all the names that begin with an R, Robert is the most common.

Other names with

If you take all the letters in the name Rehan – R, e, h, a and n – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Nareh or others.
