The first name 

Cristo is a male first name.

Cristo – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Cristo in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Cristo in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Cristo by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Cristo ranks at #3,865. That means there are 3,864 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 Cristo.

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

Cristo -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Cristo did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Cristo seemed to be more popular than ever in 2005. Although the name never ranked higher than #1,696, 70 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Cristo, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

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

Cristo in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Cristo a few times. Among all newborn boys it ranked #3,845 - with a total of 23 baby boys. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving boys with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

Cristo -
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 Cristo. This first name might not be completely unknown, but in the entire United States, there are about 604 Americans who bear this name. And these 604 men and boys named Cristo live in no more than 8 different states, including for example Arizona, California, Colorado, Georgia and Illinois. In the other 41 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 Cristo lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Cristo 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 Cristo relative to its male population is Texas. And even there, only one male in 47,787 would raise his hand if you asked, who is called Cristo.

Cristo 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 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 six letters, the name Cristo 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.

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.
