The first name 
Urho

Urho is a male first name.

Urho – a very rare name!

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

Urho -
something very, very special - even in his home state Michigan!

If you’re looking for someone named Urho, you might want to head to Michigan. Why Michigan of all places? Well, simply because, according to official statistics, there are no men or boys named Urho living in any other state. However, we have to admit that a first name is only listed in the official statistics of a state if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it may well be that there are still a few men and boys named Urho living in one state or another. But, in any case the name is extremely rare. (If your name happens to be Urho and you live outside of Michigan, we would be very grateful if you could let us know so that we can refine our statistics even further). By the way, even in Michigan, the name Urho is not really that common – there are only 10 men and boys with this name living there right now, which is not more than 0.00016% of all male residents of Michigan – so if you are one of them, you can rightly say that you are someone very special!

Urho has 4 letters 
and begins with a U

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter U is very rare as a first letter for boys' names: only 0.4% of all common boys' names in the US begin with this letter. Only the letter X is even rarer as the first letter of boys' names. By the way, the most common first letters for boys’ names are J and A.

With four letters, the name Urho is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four 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 with 0.4% of all boys' names starting with U, all other letters occur on average more than nine times as often. Moreover, of the comparatively few boys' names that start with U, most of them aren't very common either - the most popular one currently is Uriel.
