The first name 
Rogers

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

Rogers – a very rare name!

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

Rogers -
a special name with a long history

Rogers is not one of the particularly popular names. In fact in some of the last 143 years it has been given so infrequently that it doesn't even show up in our statistics (here a name is only recorded in those years in which it was given to newborns at least five times). This was, for example, most recently the case in 2022, where the name Rogers was given at most four times in the entire USA, perhaps even less or not even once. (If your name is Rogers and you were born in the USA in 2022, please get in touch with us!) Before that, however, there was a time when the name was significantly more popular - way back in the last century, Rogers even made it into the top 1,000 of our SmartGenius statistics of the most popular boys' names: In 1902, it ranked on position 435 - a popularity it has never reached again since then.

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

Rogers has 6 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 six letters, the name Rogers is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven 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.

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.
