The first name 

Sachin is a first name for boys.

When two boys called Sachin meet...

… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Sachin is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 2 out of 100,000 boys have been named Sachin. In the SmartGenius ranking, Sachin is # 3,106 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 Sachin.

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

Sachin -
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 Sachin. This first name might not be completely unknown, but in the entire United States, there are about 326 Americans who bear this name. And these 326 men and boys named Sachin live in no more than 6 different states, including for example California, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey and New York. In the other 44 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 Sachin lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Sachin 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 Sachin relative to its male population is California. And even there, only one male in 113,741 would raise his hand if you asked, who is called Sachin.

Sachin has 6 letters 
and begins with an S

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter S is a quite popular first letter for boys’ names. Because: 5.9% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for boys’ names are J, A and D.

With six letters, the name Sachin 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.

This means that with 5.9% of all boys' names that begin with an S, this first letter is much more common than all 26 letters on average - and the most popular one of all the boys’ names starting with S is Steven.
