Josiel -
at home in Florida, New York and Texas

Meeting a man or boy named Josiel is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Josiel can be found in only three: Florida, New York and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Josiel. 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 Josiel living in one state or another. (If your name is Josiel and you live outside of Florida, New York 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 Josiel is in Florida, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Florida, only 0.00044% of all male residents are called Josiel – that’s just one in 227,355! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 48 men going by that name. So, if your name is Josiel, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.
