The first name 

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

Worthy – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Worthy 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 boy in 100,000 has been named Worthy. That means that a boy named Worthy is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name his 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 Worthy.

Worthy -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Worthy a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Parents chose this name most often in 1880 – at that time, it landed at position 793 with 5 newborn boys receiving this special first name. This was the last peak in a world without airplanes, computers, rock music, or even television. Because Worthy 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 Worthy, 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 Worthy was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Worthy has 6 letters 
and begins with a W

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter W is quite rare as an initial letter for boys' names: only 1.5% of all common boys' names in the US begin with a W, which means that this initial occurs only about half as often as the other letters on average. Nevertheless, W is by no means the rarest initial. While J, A and D are the most common first letters of boys' names, X, U and Q are the least common initials of feminine first names.

With six letters, the name Worthy is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. 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 since 1.5% of all boys’ names begin with a W, this initial occurs less than half as often as the other letters on average. By the way, of the comparatively few boys' names that begin with a W, William is currently the most common.
