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.

By comparison, there have been 105 years in which the first name Dilia has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2021.

at home only in a few regions of the USA

And yet even there, only one in 87,835 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Dilia.

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.
