Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter S is a real popular first letter for given names. That’s because 7.7% of all common frist names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters A, J and K are more common for first names.

With eight letters, the name Santonia is long compared to other names. In fact, 14.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly eight letters. 78% of all first names are shorter, while only 8% of all boys’ and girls’ names use nine letters or even more. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

That means that if 7.7% of all first names start with an S, this initial letter occurs more than twice as often as all 26 letters on average.
