The first name 

Ikhlas is a female first name. In very rare cases it is also used for boys.

Ikhlas – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Ikhlas in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Ikhlas in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Ikhlas by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Ikhlas ranks at #5,740. That means there are 5,739 more common girls 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 Ikhlas.

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

Ikhlas -
at home in Minnesota and Ohio

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Ikhlas, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in Minnesota and Ohio. 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 Ikhlas living in one state or another (if your name is Ikhlas and you live outside of Minnesota and Ohio, 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 41,650 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Ikhlas. So, if your name is Ikhlas it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Ikhlas already makes you special.

Ikhlas has 6 letters 
and begins with an I

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter I is pretty rare as an initial letter for girls' names: only 1.7% of all common girls' names in the US begin with an I. The most common first letters of girls' names, by the way, are A, S and M, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.

With six letters, the name Ikhlas is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven 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.

That means that since 1.7% of all girls’ names begin with an I, this initial occurs only about half as often as the other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are of course single names that begin with an I, which are quite popular

Other names with 
I, k, h, l, a and s

If you take all the letters in the name Ikhlas – I, k, h, l, a and s – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Kahlis or others.
