The first name 

Hani is a masculine first name but has increasingly been given to girls in recent years.

Hani – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Hani in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Hani in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Hani by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Hani ranks at #4,994. That means there are 4,993 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Hani.

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

Hani -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Hani is a true rarity among all men and boys currently living in the United States – only 39 Americans in total bear this name. And these 39 men are located in only four states: California, Michigan, Minnesota and New York (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 men with this name in the state. So, if your name is Hani and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Hani in relation to it’s male population is Michigan. And yet even there, only one in 521,073 men would raise his hand if asked whether there was a Hani present.

Hani has 4 letters 
and begins with an H

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter H is not particularly common as a first letter for boys' names: only 2.9% of all common boys' names in the US begin with an H. The most common first letters for boys' names are J and A, while X and U are the least common first letters of boys' names.

With four letters, the name Hani 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.

This means that if 2.9% of all boys' names begin with an H, this initial letter is less common than the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are of course some names that begin with H and are extremely popular, for example Henry, currently the most common boys’ name with H.

Other names with 
H, a, n and i

If you take all the letters in the name Hani – H, a, n and i – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Ahni or others.
