The first name 
Keola

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

Keola – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Keola 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 boy in 100,000 has been named Keola. That means that a boy named Keola is exceptional and may not meet another person with the same name his 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 Keola.

Keola -
special from day one

In fact, the name Keola wasn't vogue in the 19th century, but between 1900 and 1975 young parents changed that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Keola seemed more popular than ever in 1974, when 26 parents named their sons Keola. Although the name never ranked higher than #1,580, that year parents chose it as a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Keola, you were already special when you were born - and you did your best to become a trendsetter.

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

Keola - originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the rare name Keola a few times. Among all newborn boys, it ranked 7,630, for a total of 8 babies. The name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for a many years. As Keola seems to be a bit more popular in the middle of the 20th century, it proves to remain a great rarity in 2022.

Keola has 5 letters 
and begins with a K

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter K is a real popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 7.9% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters J, A and D are more common for boys' names.

With five letters, the name Keola is comparatively short. In fact, 17.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly five letters. Only 7% of all first names are even shorter, while 75% have more than five 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 if 7.9% of all boys' names start with a K, this initial letter occurs more than twice as often as all 26 letters on average. Interesting detail: of all the boys’ names that begin with a K, Kenneth is the most common.

Other names with
