The first name 

Geo is a first name typically given to boys, but in rare cases also used as a girls name.

Geo – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Geo in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Geo in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Geo by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Geo ranks at #3,729. That means there are 3,728 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 Geo.

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

Geo -
at home in California, Texas and Washington

Meeting a man or boy named Geo is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Geo can be found in only three: California, Texas and Washington. No other state currently has residents named Geo. 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 men and boys called Geo living in one state or another. (If your name is Geo and you live outside of California, Texas or Washington, 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 Geo is in California, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in California, only 0.00030% of all male residents are called Geo – that’s just one in 329,618! And even in all the states, California, Texas and Washington, combined there are only a total of 61 men going by that name. So, if your name is Geo, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.

Geo has 3 letters 
and begins with a G

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter G is not really common as a first letter for boys' names: only 2.8% of all common boys' names in the US begin with G. 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 only three letters, the name Geo is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three 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.

That means that with 2.8% of all boys' names beginning with a G, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are boys' names with G that are quite popular, the most common at present is George.
