The first name 

Calise is a female first name.

Calise – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Calise in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Calise in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Calise by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Calise ranks at #5,254. That means there are 5,253 more common girls 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 Calise.

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

Calise -
something very, very special - even in her home state California!

If you’re looking for someone named Calise, you might want to head to California. Why California of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no women or girls named Calise living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few women and girls named Calise living in one state or another. But, in any case the name is extremely rare (if your name happens to be Calise and you live outside of California, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in California, the name Calise is not really that common – there are only 10 women and girls with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00007% of all female residents of California – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!

Calise has 6 letters 
and begins with a C

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter C is a frequent initial letter for girls' names. This is because 6.0% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of girls' names, by the way, are A, S and M.

With six letters, the name Calise is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. 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 with 6.0% of all girls' names that begin with a C, this first letter is much more common than the average of all letters. And which girls’ name beginning with C do you think is the most common in the US? The answer is... Carol.
