The first name 

Ikran is a first name for girls.

Ikran – a very rare name!

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

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

Ikran -
at home in Minnesota and Ohio

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Ikran, 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 Ikran living in one state or another (if your name is Ikran 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 165,336 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Ikran. So, if your name is Ikran it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Ikran already makes you special.

Ikran has 5 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 five letters, the name Ikran 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 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, r, a and n

If you take all the letters in the name Ikran – I, k, r, a and n – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Arnik or others.
