Yariel is a first name typically given to boys, but in rare cases also used as a girls name.
Yariel is a well-known name in the US, but is still special. It is currently only given to every ten thousandth boy, and therefore ranks at 1494 in the SmartGenius statistics. This means there are 1,493 boys names that are more common, but also tens of thousands that are much rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Yariel.
The odds of having a man or boy named Yariel in your home state are about the same as the chance for a white Christmas in New York City – in both cases they are less than 30%.

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter Y is pretty rare as an initial letter for boys' names: only 1.7% of all common boys' names in the US begin with Y.

With six letters, the name Yariel 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.
Since 1.7% of all boys’ names begin with a Y, this initial occurs less than half as often as the other letters on average, but Y is by no means the rarest initial. And of course, there are single names with Y that are very popular, currently the most common boys’ name that starts with Y is Yahir.
If your name is Yariel 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...
