The first name 
Ginette

Ginette is a first name for girls.

Ginette – a very rare name!

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

Ginette -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should to be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Ginette. Girls named Ginette have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it many years ago: Reaching pos. 1,769 Ginette ranked higher than ever in 1959. By comparison, there have been 81 years in which the first name Ginette has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2022. In general, parents name their daughters Ginette only once in a blue moon, so girls and women with this name can consider themselves really special!

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

Ginette -
at home in California and New York

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Ginette, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in California and New York. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if tehre are at least five people with that name living there – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Ginette living in one state or another (if your name is Ginette and you live outside of California and New York, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know, so we can refine our statistics even further). Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 161,261 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Ginette. So, if your name is Ginette it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Ginette already makes you special.

Ginette has 7 letters 
and begins with a G

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter G is quite rare as a first letter for girls' names: only 2.1% of all common girls' names in the US begin with a G. The most common first letters for girls' names are A and S, while U and X are the least common first letters of girls' names.

With seven letters, the name Ginette has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight 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.

This means that if 2.1% of all girls' names begin with a G, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are of course some names that begin with a G and are extremely popular, for example Grace, currently the most common girls' name with G.
