The first name 

Ayo is a unisex first name, but it has been given primarily to boys for a number of years.

Ayo is a very rare first name!

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Ayo has 3 letters 
and begins with an A

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter A is the most popular first letter for given names. 10.3% of all common first names in the US start with this letter. The second most common initial letter in first names is J.

With only three letters, the name Ayo is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three 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.

That means that if 10.3% of all first names start with an A, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average.

Other names with 
A, y and o

If you take all the letters in the name Ayo – A, y and o – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Oya or Yao.
