to discover about the name

Aimee -
evergreen, but special

For more than 140 years, parents decide to name their daughter Aimee annualy. This means that there have been girls named Aimee who witnessed the first Labor Day parade in the U.S. or followed Albert Einstein's career. The name has 'always been there', but never ranked in the top 100, and thus women named Aimee have consistently been special. The name became especially popular in the last quarter of the last century and there was one year in particular when parents of Generation X and Generation Y rather came up with the idea of naming their child Aimee: in 1976, it holds its present record of #120 in the ranking of the most popular girls' names.

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

How popular was Aimee 2021 among young parents?

Aimee has never been ranked higher than #120. In 2021, she rivaled the 1,221 names that preceded her on the list. In total, 165 girls named Aimee were born in that year. For comparison: 30 years earlier, in 1991, when possibly the parents of the now very young Aimee were born, there have been 945 newborns who received this name.

Aimee -
at home in every state from California to New York

The name Aimee may not be in the top rankings of the most popular girls’ names, but it is one of the few female given names, along with only 536 others, that can be found in every single state in the U.S. from Alaska to Florida and from California to New York. Of course, the name occurs more frequently in some states than in others – and Aimee is apparently especially popular in Utah. Although the name is not one of the top 100 most popular women’s names here either, one in 1,343 women in Utah is called Aimee. In total, that’s 859 women who feel addressed when the name Aimee is shouted loudly across Utah and who ensure that their name makes it to #348 in our SmartGenius ranking of the most common female names in this nice state. If you asked all women in the entire U.S. for their first name, you would hear Aimee as the answer a total of 50,122 times. This places Aimee at #507 in our SmartGenius statistics for the most popular women’s names in the whole of the USA. This is true for all currently living women across all states and age groups – the recent popularity of the name Aimee as a baby name is, of course, a bit different, as you can see from the statistics above.

Aimee has 5 letters 
and begins with an A

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter A is the most popular first letter for girls’ names. 11.8% of all common girls’ names in the US start with this letter. The second most common first letter in girls' names is S.

With five letters, the name Aimee 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 11.8% of all girls' names start with an A, this initial letter occurs over three times as often as all other letters on average. And, by the way, of all the girls' names that begin with the letter A, the name Ashley is the most common.

Other names with
