Jolissa is a first name for girls.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Jolissa in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Jolissa in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Jolissa by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Jolissa ranks at #8,596. That means there are 8,595 more common girls 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 Jolissa.
Meeting a woman or girl named Jolissa is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Jolissa can be found in only two: California and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Jolissa. 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 Jolissa living in one state or another (if your name is Jolissa and you live outside of California 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 Jolissa is in California, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in California, only 0.00011% of all female residents are named Jolissa – that’s just one in 921,689! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 21 women with that name. So, if your name is Jolissa, chances are you will never meet another woman with your beautiful first name.
