The first name 
Soloman

Soloman is a first name for boys.

Soloman – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Soloman in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Soloman in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Soloman by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Soloman ranks at #4,784. That means there are 4,783 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Soloman.
