The first name 
Quinterrius

Quinterrius is a male first name.

Quinterrius – a very rare name!

Recently, the name Quinterrius 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 Quinterrius. That means that a boy named Quinterrius 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 Quinterrius.

Quinterrius -
at home in Alabama and Georgia

Meeting a man or boy named Quinterrius is something really special. Out of all 50 states, men and boys named Quinterrius can be found in only two: Alabama and Georgia. No other state currently has residents named Quinterrius. 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 Quinterrius living in one state or another. (If your name is Quinterrius and you live outside of Alabama or Georgia, 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 Quinterrius is in Georgia, as there live more men and boys with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Georgia, only 0.00025% of all male residents are called Quinterrius – that’s just one in 404,016! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 16 men going by that name. So, if your name is Quinterrius, chances are you will never meet another man bearing that extraordinary first name.

Quinterrius has 11 letters 
and begins with a Q

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The Q is really rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 0.8% of all common boys' names in the US begin with a Q. Only the letters X and U are even rarer as the first letter of boys' names. By the way, the most common initial letters for boys’ names are J and A.

With eleven letters, the name Quinterrius is obviously a particularly long first name. Only 0.5% of all common first names in the U.S. contain exactly eleven letters, and only 0.1% are longer. Most first names – over 99% – have fewer letters. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long with no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

That means that as 0.8% of all boys' names start with a Q, all other letters occur on average more than five times as often as the Q. Of the comparatively few boys' names that begin with a Q, most are also not very common - the most popular currently is the one of Mr. Tarantino.
