Ali is the #2434 most common female name.
0.002% of females in the US are named Ali.
Around 2550 US females are named Ali!
Ali is the #614 most common male name.
0.012% of men in the US are named Ali.
Around 14700 US men are named Ali!

sometimes isolate yourself from other people,
afraid to share your own feelings.
