Ziyon has 5 letters 
and begins with a Z

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter Z is quite rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 2.4% of all common boys' names in the US begin with Z. 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 five letters, the name Ziyon is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five 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.

Therefore: As 2.4% of all boys' names begin with a Z, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Interesting detail: of all the names that begin with Z, Zachary is the most common.
