The first name 
Gricel

Gricel is a first name for girls.

Gricel – a very rare name!

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

Gricel -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Gricel is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 106 Americans in total bear this name. And these 106 women called Gricel are located in only four states: California, Illinois, New York and Texas. (However, we have to mention that the official statistics provide the frequency of a name per state only if there are at least 5 women with this sepcific name in that state. It is therefore quite possible that there are one or two more states where someone with the name Gricel lives without being listed in official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Gricel 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 girls and women named Gricel in relation to it’s female population is California. And yet even there, only one in 273,093 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Gricel.

Gricel has 6 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 quite rare as a first letter for girls' names: only 2.1% of all common girls' names in the US begin with a G. The most common first letters for girls' names are A and S, while U and X are the least common first letters of girls' names.

With six letters, the name Gricel 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.

This means that if 2.1% of all girls' names begin with a G, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are of course some names that begin with a G and are extremely popular, for example Grace, currently the most common girls' name with G.
