The first name 

Celso is a male first name.

Celso – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Celso in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Celso in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Celso by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Celso ranks at #3,776. That means there are 3,775 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 Celso.

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

Celso -
swimming against the tide

If your name is Celso your parents may be very proud to let their son swim against the tide: The name Celso has never ranked higher than position 1,159 in our statistics and for many years not a single parent had the creative idea to choose the name Celso for their son. But something caused mothers and fathers in 1910 to give the name more often than usual – only compared to the rest of the time, of course. You probably still won't find many children named Celso because that was several decades ago – unless, of course, you have some very creative parents in your neighborhood.

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

2022 - Looking for Celso?

As in the last century, Celso is still an exception. Even in 2022, the name was given very rarely - in fact, only 20 times in the entire USA. So a Celso of 2022 will need very good binoculars to spot the next namesake of the same age.

Celso -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

In not even one in five states you will find more than 4 men and boys with the name Celso. This first name might not be completely unknown, but in the entire United States, there are about 1,066 Americans who bear this name. And these 1,066 men and boys named Celso live in no more than 9 different states, including for example Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois and New Jersey. In the other 40 states, there are either none or less than a handful boys and men with this name (to explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five men with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Celso lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Celso and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Celso relative to its male population is Texas. And even there, only one male in 21,454 would raise his hand if you asked, who is called Celso.

Celso has 5 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 boys’ names. This is because 5.2% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. The most common first letters of boys' names, by the way, are J, A and D.

With five letters, the name Celso is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five 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.

With 5.2% of all boys' names that begin with a C, this first letter is thus much more common than the average of all letters. And which boys’ name beginning with C do you think is the most common in the US? The answer is... Charles.
