The first name 

Jaci is a female first name.

Jaci is a well-known but special name!

Jaci is a well-known name in the US, but is still special. It is currently only given to every ten thousandth girl, and therefore ranks at 1,952 in the SmartGenius statistics. This means there are 1,951 girls names that are more common, but also tens of thousands that are much rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Jaci.

Jaci -
an underrated contemporary

While Jaci isn't one of the most popular names of all time, it seems to be attracting more and more parents in the 21st century. In 2005 the name Jaci reached its highest popularity with #1,021 in our ranking of all female first names. Because it's so exquisite, moms and dads haven't always thought of naming their daughter Jaci (or at least not more than four in some years as there must be at least five girls named Jaci to appear in the official statistics). Using these criteria, the first name Jaci has been given to babies in 76 of the 143 years since records began, making girls with this name still very special today.

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

Jaci in 2022 – marvelously unusual

In 2022, 64 babies were born with the name Jaci. This puts the name in rank 2,392 in the SmartGenius statistics - or in other words, one in 2,316,123 newborns was named Jaci that year. Ever since first names have been registered, Jaci has been and remains marvelously unusual!

Jaci -
special, but at home in many states

You may not know anyone named Jaci, but there’s a good chance you live in the same state as someone with that name. In fact, 27 states are home to women and girls named Jaci. (To be fair, a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s entirely possible that there are still a few women and girls named Jaci living in one state or another. If your name is Jaci and you live outside of the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can refine our statistics even further). And while the first name is present in many states, it is still not one of the popular ones. In Louisiana, which has the most people named Jaci relative to the population, you still have to ask 7,309 women and girls their names before you hear Jaci as an answer just once.

Jaci has 4 letters 
and begins with a J

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter J is a particularly popular initial letter for girls' names. That’s because 6.8% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for girls’ names are A, S and M.

With four letters, the name Jaci 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 with 6.8% of all girls' names that begin with the letter J, this first letter is much more common than the other letters on average. And Jennifer is the girls' name starting with J, which is the most common of all.
