The first name 

Talib is a male first name.

Talib – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Talib in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Talib in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Talib by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Talib ranks at #4,122. That means there are 4,121 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 Talib.
