Vinicius is a male first name.
There’s a good chance that a boy named Vinicius in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Vinicius in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Vinicius by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Vinicius ranks at #7,119. That means there are 7,118 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 Vinicius.
Meeting a man or boy named Vinicius is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Vinicius can be found in only two: Massachusetts and New Jersey. No other state currently has residents named Vinicius. 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 men and boys called Vinicius living in one state or another. (If your name is Vinicius and you live outside of Massachusetts or New Jersey, 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 Vinicius is in Massachusetts, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Massachusetts, only 0.00137% of all male residents are called Vinicius – that’s just one in 72,769! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 62 men going by that name. So, if your name is Vinicius, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The V is really rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 1.3% of all common boys' names in the US begin with a V. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.
With eight letters, the name Vinicius is long compared to other names. In fact, 14.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly eight letters. 78% of all first names are shorter, while only 8% of all boys’ and girls’ names use nine letters or even more. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.
That means that if 1.3% of all boys' names start with a V, all other letters occur on average three times as often as the V. Nevertheless, individual boys' names with V are quite popular, the most common currently being Vincent.
If your name is Vinicius and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? 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...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Vinicius, you can simply say:
Braille is made up of dots, which the blind and visually impaired can feel to read words.
Just use American Sign Language!
These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Vinicius sounds like this:
