Rare names are the opposite of the common names that we discussed above. I call the name rare that occurs in the PS 1 to 5 times. Looking through the PS, I specially paid attention to such names, and they are presented in the following tables relatively fully.

Rare male names

There are 171 names, 142 (83 %) Christian and 29 (17 %) non-Christian.

Rare female names

A total of 25 names, 17 of them (68 %) are Christian, and 8 (32 %) are non-Christian.
