The first name 

Sparkle is a female first name.

Sparkle – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Sparkle in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Sparkle in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Sparkle by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Sparkle ranks at #9,145. That means there are 9,144 more common girls 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 Sparkle.
