The first name 
Cheryll

Cheryll is a female first name.

Cheryll – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Cheryll has been given only a handful of times a year and is therefore particularly rare, at least in the US. In recent years, not even one girl in 100,000 has been named Cheryll. That means that a girl named Cheryll is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name her whole life. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Cheryll.

Cheryll -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Cheryll a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Chosen by 120 parents, the name was given most frequently in 1946 – at that time, it ranked #700. 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 Cheryll is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always come up with the idea of giving their child this unusual name. So, if your name is Cheryll, 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 Cheryll was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.
