The first name 

Teo is a first name for boys.

Teo is a well-known but special name!

Teo is a well-known name in the US, but is still special. It is currently only given to every ten thousandth boy, and therefore ranks at 1320 in the SmartGenius statistics. This means there are 1,319 boys names that are more common, but also tens of thousands that are much rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Teo.

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

Teo -
keeping with the times

Teo is a fairly recent phenomenon. In the past, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. Then, unexpectedly, Teo cried out for attention, reaching its peak in popularity at #883 in our SmartGenius statistics in the year 2022. People over 50 probably didn't have classmates named Teo, for there were many years in which not a single parent chose this first name for their son. Although it also has never been in the top 100 of most popular first names, Teo seems to have been in vogue for a while, especially since the beginning of the new millennium.

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

Teo -
quite rare in all states

The odds of having a man or boy named Teo in your home state are about the same as the chance for a white Christmas in New York City – in both cases they are less than 30%. More precisely, the first name Teo is registered in 19 states, among which are Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida or Georgia. In proportion to the male population, most men and boys with the first name Teo live in California, but even there the name is rather special – on average, you would have to ask 35,047 men and boys in California for their name before you meet one who answers with Teo.

Teo has 3 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 particularly popular initial letter for boys’ names. That’s because 6.3% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for boys’ names are J, A and D.

With only three letters, the name Teo is obviously very short. In fact, only 1.0% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly three letters. Just 0.2% of all first names are even shorter and only have two letters, while nearly 99% of all boys’ and girls’ names use more than three 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.

With 6.3% of all boys' names that begin with the letter T, this first letter is much more common than the other letters on average. And Thomas is the boys’ name starting with T, which is the most common of all.

Other names with 
T, e and o

If you take all the letters in the name Teo – T, e and o – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Eto.
