The first name 

Sulma is a first name for girls.

Sulma – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Sulma 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 Sulma. That means that a girl named Sulma 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 Sulma.

You won't believe all there is

Sulma -
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 be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Sulma. Girls named Sulma have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it a few years ago: At No. 3,611 Sulma ranked higher than ever before in 1990. By comparison, there have been 99 years in which the first name Sulma 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 Sulma only once in a blue moon, so girls and women with this name can consider themselves exceptional!

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

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

The first name Sulma is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 97 Americans in total bear this name. And these 97 women are located in only three states: California, New York and Texas (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 women with this name in the state. So, if your name is Sulma and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most girls and women named Sulma in relation to it’s female population is California. And yet even there, only one in 191,191 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Sulma.

Sulma has 5 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 very popular first letter for girls' names. That’s because 9.3% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letter A is more common for girls' names.

With five letters, the name Sulma is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five letters. 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.

That means that if 9.3% of all girls' names start with an S, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And by the way: Of all the girls' names that start with an S, Susan is the most common.

Other names with 
S, u, l, m and a

If you take all the letters in the name Sulma – S, u, l, m and a – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Samul or others.
