The first name 

Dilia is a first name for girls.

Dilia – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Dilia 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 Dilia. That means that a girl named Dilia 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 Dilia.

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

Dilia -
at home in California, New Mexico and Texas

Meeting a woman or girl named Dilia is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Dilia can be found in only three: California, New Mexico and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Dilia. 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 women and girls called Dilia living in one state or another. (If your name is Dilia and you live outside of California, New Mexico or Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Dilia is in New Mexico, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in New Mexico, only 0.00115% of all female residents are called Dilia – that’s just one in 87,327! And even in all the states, California, New Mexico and Texas, combined there are only a total of 20 women going by that name. So, if your name is Dilia, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.

Dilia has 5 letters 
and begins with a D

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter D is quite common as an initial letter for girls' names. To be precise, 5.6% of all 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 five letters, the name Dilia 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.

Therefore: As 5.6% of all girls' names start with D, this initial letter occurs much more often than all 26 letters on average. And maybe interesting to know: of all the names that begin with a D, Dorothy is the most common.

Other names with

If you take all the letters in the name Dilia – D, i, l, i and a – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Idali or Lidia.
