The first name 

Ura is a female first name. In some cases it's also given to boys.

Ura – a very rare name!

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

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Ura -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Ura a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Parents chose this name most often in 1891 – at that time, it landed at position 744 with 12 newborn girls receiving this special first name. This was the last peak in a world without airplanes, computers, rock music, or even television. Because Ura is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always think to give their child this unusual name. So, if your name is Ura, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, your name is what makes you stand out these days!

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

Ura in 2022 - someone's missing!

If you are reading this and you know someone with the name Ura born in 2022, please get in touch with us. Because we could not find any newborn girls with this name for the said year. Note: The official statistics only include names given at least 5 times in a year. So, if you know a Ura born in 2022, that seems like a real fluke!

Ura -
at home in Louisiana and Texas

Meeting a woman or girl named Ura is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Ura can be found in only two: Louisiana and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Ura. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Ura living in one state or another (if your name is Ura and you live outside of Louisiana or Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further). Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Ura is in Louisiana, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Louisiana, only 0.00040% of all female residents are named Ura – that’s just one in 247,178! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 26 women with that name. So, if your name is Ura, chances are you will never meet another woman with your beautiful first name.

Ura has 3 letters 
and begins with a U

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter U is the rarest initial for girls' names in the US. Only 0.2% of all common girls' names begin with this letter. Incidentally, the second-rarest first letter of girls' names is X, and the most common first letters are A and S.

With only three letters, the name Ura is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three 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 with 0.2% of all girls' names starting with an X, all other letters occur on average nearly twenty times as often as the U. Moreover, of the comparatively few girls' names that start with X, most of them aren't very common either - the most popular one currently is Ursula.

Other names with 
U, r and a

If you take all the letters in the name Ura – U, r and a – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Rua.

In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
