Zeinab is a first name for girls.
… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Zeinab is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 2 out of 100,000 girls have been named Zeinab.

Meeting a woman or girl named Zeinab is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Zeinab can be found in only three: California, Michigan and New York. No other state currently has residents named Zeinab. 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 Zeinab living in one state or another. (If your name is Zeinab and you live outside of California, Michigan or New York, 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 Zeinab is in Michigan, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Michigan, only 0.00951% of all female residents are called Zeinab – that’s just one in 10,512! And even in all the states, California, Michigan and New York, combined there are only a total of 660 women going by that name. So, if your name is Zeinab, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.
