The first name 

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

Tamiko – a very rare name!

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

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Tamiko -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Tamiko a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Chosen by 503 parents, the name was given most frequently in 1975 – at that time, it ranked #388. It thus experienced its last peak in a world without internet and cell phones, even before the first personal computer was built. (Do you remember? Those were those big boxes that couldn't even begin to do what a simple robot vacuum cleaner can do today). Since Tamiko is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always come up with the idea of giving their child this unusual name. So, if your name is Tamiko, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, you stand out with your name these days!

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

Tamiko -
special, but at home in many states

You may not know anyone named Tamiko, but there’s a good chance you live in the same state as someone with that name. In fact, 25 states are home to women and girls named Tamiko. (To be fair, 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 entirely possible that there are still a few women and girls named Tamiko living in one state or another. If your name is Tamiko and you live outside of the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can refine our statistics even further). And while the first name is present in many states, it is still not one of the popular ones. In Georgia, which has the most people named Tamiko relative to the population, you still have to ask 21,012 women and girls their names before you hear Tamiko as an answer just once.

Tamiko has 6 letters 
and begins with a T

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter T is a quite popular first letter for girls' names. Because: 6.3% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for girls’ names are A, S and M.

With six letters, the name Tamiko 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.

With 6.3% of all girls' names that begin with a T, this first letter is thus much more common than all 26 letters on average - and the most popular one of all the girls’ names starting with T is Teresa.

Other names with
