Flavio -
an underrated contemporary

While Flavio isn't one of the most popular names of all time, it does seem to have attracted parents especially in the second half of last century. In 1996 the name Flavio reached its highest popularity with #1,123 in our ranking of all male first names. As it is so exquisite, mothers and fathers did not always come up with the idea of naming their son Flavio. One might assume that this was because the name was only occasionally in keeping with the spirit of the times - and boys in those decades were given the unusual and beautiful name of Flavio.

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

Flavio has 6 letters 
and begins with an F

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter F is quite rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 1.5% of all common boys' names in the US begin with an F. By the way, the most common first letters of boys' names are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.

With six letters, the name Flavio 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.

Therefore: As 1.5% of all boys' names begin with an F, this initial letter is significantly less common than the other letters on average. However, individual boys' names with F are really popular, the most common currently being Frank.
