Janica is a female first name.
Recently, the name Janica 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 Janica. That means that a girl named Janica 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 Janica.
If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Janica, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in California, New York and Utah. 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 Janica living in one state or another (if your name is Janica and you live outside of California, New York and Utah, 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 230,709 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Janica. So, if your name is Janica it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Janica already makes you special.
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 six letters, the name Janica 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.
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.
If your name is Janica and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Janica, you can simply say:
