The first name 

Azel is a first name for boys, occasionally also given to girls.

Azel – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Azel in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Azel in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Azel by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Azel ranks at #4,285. That means there are 4,284 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Azel.

You won't believe all there is

Azel -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Azel a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Chosen by 6 parents, the name was given most frequently in 1900 – at that time, it ranked #949. It thus experienced its last peak in a world without internet and cell phones, even before the first personal computer was built. (Do you remember? Those were those big boxes that couldn't even begin to do what a simple robot vacuum cleaner can do today). Since Azel is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always come up with the idea of giving their baby boy this unusual name. So, if your name is Azel, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, you stand out with your name these days!

In years where the graph has no value, the name Azel was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Azel in 2022 – There he is!

Welcome, Azel, to 2022. Even if your highest rank is long ago, 28 parents welcomed a new Azel to earth that year. That makes Azel ranking on position 3,380 among newborn boys in the SmartGenius statistics. If you know someone named Azel who was born in 2022, you know someone truly special.

Azel -
at home in California and Texas

If you ever wanted to meet a boy or man named Azel, you have limited options – because boys with this beautiful name are currently only living in California or Texas. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few men and boys called Azel living in one state or another. (If your name is Azel and you live outside of California and Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 369,263 boys and men would turn around if you called out the name Azel. So if your name is Azel, it’s very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Azel already makes you quite special.

Azel has 4 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 a very popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 9.0% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letter J is more common for boys' names.

With four letters, the name Azel is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four 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 9.0% of all boys' names start with an A, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And by the way: Of all the boys' names that start with an A, Anthony is the most common.

Other names with 
A, z, e and l

If you take all the letters in the name Azel – A, z, e and l – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Alez or others.
