Kabir -
keeping with the times

Kabir is a fairly recent phenomenon. In the past, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. Then, unexpectedly, Kabir cried out for attention, reaching its peak in popularity at #778 in our SmartGenius statistics in the year 2021. People over 50 probably didn't have classmates named Kabir, for there were many years in which not a single parent chose this first name for their son. Although it also has never been in the top 100 of most popular first names, Kabir seems to have been in vogue for a while, especially since the beginning of the new millennium.

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

Kabir has 5 letters 
and begins with a K

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter K is a real popular first letter for boys’ names. That’s because 7.9% of all common boys’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters J, A and D are more common for boys' names.

With five letters, the name Kabir 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 if 7.9% of all boys' names start with a K, this initial letter occurs more than twice as often as all 26 letters on average. Interesting detail: of all the boys’ names that begin with a K, Kenneth is the most common.

Other names with
