Appearing throughout the time in the United States, the name Jimmie is a staple in the country: Boys have been given the name Jimmie for more than 140 years, according to official U.S. naming statistics. Jimmie is therefore one of only 443 boys’ names that have been given every year since 1880. Even beyond that, Jimmie is a very special name that peaked in popularity some time ago in the 20th century. Placed at #59 Jimmie easily made it into the top 100 boys' names of our SmartGenius statistics for male first names and has never been more popular than back in 1934.
In years where the graph has no value, the name Jimmie was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.
As many as 61 babies were named Jimmie in the USA in 2021, ranking it at #2,031 on the list of the most popular boys' names for that year. However, it experienced its lowest point of popularity in 2019, when it was only ranked #2,135 of all male names in our SmartGenius statistics – back then only 57 boys were named Jimmie.
Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter J is the most popular first letter for boys’ names. 10.1% of all common boys’ names in the US start with this letter. The second most common first letter in boys’ names is A.
With six letters, the name Jimmie 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 if 10.1% of all boys’ names start with a J, this initial letter occurs nearly three times as often as all other letters on average. And, by the way, of all the boys’ names that begin with the letter J, the name James is the most common.
