From 1880 through 2018, the Social Security Administration recognized 56,978 infants born in the United States with the first name Alana. That's more than enough Alanas to populate Greenland (Denmark), which has a population of 56,749 people (as of January 1, 2012). In what year were five or more newborns called Alana for the first time? 1882, 1883, 1884, 1893, and 1904.
Here are the names that came before and after Alana:
The most common first name among women born in America is Elizabeth. For men, it's Michael.
In terms of total number of occurrences, Alana is ranked 3rd behind Elizabeth and Michael. However, when considering the percentage of names given to girls, Alana is ranked 1st. And when considering the percentage of names given to boys, Alana is also ranked 1st. There are also two words in the English language that contain the letter "A" that come from the Hebrew word for one. These words are "aleph" and "ana". They both mean "one" and are used in place names like Aladdin and Anastasia.
From 1880 through 2017, the Social Security Administration recognized 321,092 infants born in the United States with the first name Isabella. That's more than enough Isabellas to populate Iceland, which has a population of 320,060 people (as of April 1, 2012). In what year were five or more newborns called Isabella for the first time? 1882, 1883, 1890, 1893, and 1895.
Isabella was originally used as an English given name until it was usurped by another female name that is now less popular: Isabel. Like most names that begin with the letter B, many variations of Isabella are found in the American naming landscape. These include Bea, Beata, Beatrice, Betsy, Beth, Bianca, and many more. There are also several relatively rare names that start with "Bella" and end in "-ella": Bella Donna, Bella Floyd, Bella Hocking, and so on.
Isabella was originally used as a Spanish given name until it was usurped by another European name that is now less common: Eva.
From 1880 through 2017, the Social Security Administration recognized 52,431 infants born in the United States with the first name Alec. That's more than enough Alecs to populate the Faroe Islands (Denmark), which have a population of 48,285 people (as of March 1, 2012).
Here are the other names that appear most often among American babies: Mary, James, John, Michael, Andrew, Peter and William.
The most common first name for all of America is Mary. It appears on the birth records of about 14 million Americans. Second is James, followed by John, Michael, Andrew, Peter and William. These are all very popular names that you might expect.
Alec was named after two people, both of them brothers: Alexander Smith McCallum Jr. and Alexander Smith McCallum III. They were prominent surgeons who helped establish hospitals in Chicago and Boston, respectively. The younger Alec was born in 1872 and he got his brother as a given name because they were so much like each other.
Alexander Smith McCallum III was also one of the founders of the American College of Surgeons. He became president of this college in 1889 when he was only thirty years old. His brother had died earlier that year. So perhaps it was natural for people to give him the same name that belonged to his deceased colleague.
From 1880 through 2017, the Social Security Administration recognized 12,026 infants born in the United States with the first name Carlee. That is more than enough Carlees to populate Tuvalu, which has a population of 10,000 people (as of July 1, 2012).
The first record of a person with the given name Carlee appears in social security records in 1880. She was 12 years old and living in New York.
Most Carlees were named after one of the following women: Carrie, Caroline, Clara, Ellen, Elizabeth, Frances, Grace, Harriet, Laura, Mary, Nancy, Olivia, Pearl, Phoebe, Rosa, Sarah, Susan, or Victoria. A few boys also had this name. Their families probably chose it because it is a common name that tends to be used often (12,026 people).
Carlee was originally a short form of Caroline that was used especially by girls' names beginning with this letter. Now it is used as a single name by itself.
There are also two other names that start with "C-A-R-" that could be considered variants of Carlee: Carmen and Carlie. These names were more popular around the 1950s and 1960s.
From 1880 through 2017, the Social Security Administration recognized 2,121 newborns born in the United States with the first name Abdulrahman. That's more than enough Abdulrahmans to populate Christmas Island (Australia), which has a population of 1,462 people (as of June 30, 2010).
Christmas Island is an autonomous territory of Australia located in the Indian Ocean midway between India and Africa. The name "Christmas Island" was given by Sir Francis Drake, who spotted the island on December 25, 1578. He named it after Christ's mass.
The population of Christmas Island is composed of indigenous inhabitants, mostly from the Baining tribe, and non-indigenous peoples. Most residents are employed in tourism or naval service. There are no nuclear weapons or ballistic missiles capable of reaching Australia located on Christmas Island; however, it does possess one of the largest military bases in the country. The base on Christmas Island is called Christmas Island Naval Base and lies within the jurisdiction of the Royal Australian Navy.
Abdulrahman was one of the most popular names of Arabic origin in 1980s America. It first appeared on top 1000 list in 1987 when it was used by two different parents to name their children. It remained on the list in 1988 but never again reached this position thereafter.
In 2016, Abdulrahman was still among the top 10 most popular names for boys.
How many persons in the United States have the first name Angela? From 1880 through 2018, the Social Security Administration recognized 667,096 infants born in the United States with the first name Angela.
This is the overall number of people who have ever been given the first name Angela. The highest number of people born with the first name Angela was in 1980, according to the SSA. There are now about 6 million adults in the United States named Angela.
Angela is the most common female given name in the United States. It is not uncommon for children to be called Angie or Annie in honor of this name.
Among males, Christopher is the most common given name. It is used by about 2 million people worldwide.
The given name Angela derives from the Hebrew word angil, meaning "man." Thus, it is a name that is given to boys who will one day lead men's groups.
According to the SSA, the popularity of names has changed over time. These statistics are based on data from millions of birth certificates filed each year by social security officials at local offices across the country. Names are ranked by how many people were recorded as receiving that name.
Names are assigned to babies born in the United States and its territories.
