The first name 
Tully

Tully is a masculine first name but has increasingly been given to girls in recent years.

Tully – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Tully in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Tully in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Tully by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Tully ranks at #6,047. That means there are 6,046 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 Tully.
