The first name 
Rosebud

Rosebud is a female first name.

Rosebud – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Rosebud 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 girl in 100,000 has been named Rosebud. That means that a girl named Rosebud is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her 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 Rosebud.

Rosebud -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should to be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Rosebud. Girls named Rosebud have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it many years ago: Reaching pos. 1,008 Rosebud ranked higher than ever in 1904. By comparison, there have been 88 years in which the first name Rosebud has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2022. In general, parents name their daughters Rosebud only once in a blue moon, so girls and women with this name can consider themselves really special!

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

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

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Rosebud in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 65 women and girls named Rosebud, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 65 women and girls named Rosebud live in no more than 7 different states, including for example Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois and North Carolina. In all other 42 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Rosebud. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women 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 Rosebud lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Rosebud 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 girls and women named Rosebud relative to its female population is Alabama. And even there, only one in 147,034 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Rosebud.

Rosebud 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 Rosebud 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.
