The first name 
Kandis

Kandis is a first name for girls.

Kandis – a very rare name!

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

Kandis -
once in a blue moon

Do you know the feeling when you go to the zoo and the animal that is supposed to be in the enclosure is not there? You know it should be there, but you've never seen it? It's the same with Kandis. Girls named Kandis have made themselves scarce. But some parents got a taste for it a few years ago: At No. 1,043 Kandis ranked higher than ever before in 1987. By comparison, there have been 72 years in which the first name Kandis has not been given at all (or less than 5 times, which is the minimum number required for a name to be included in the statistics), most recently in 2022. In general, parents name their daughters Kandis only once in a blue moon, so girls and women with this name can consider themselves exceptional!

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

Kandis -

In relation to the number of residents, the most women and girls with the first name Kandis live in Texas – here, one in 67,503 bears this beautiful name.

Kandis has 6 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 girls' names. That’s because 7.5% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. Only the first letters A, S and M are more common for girls' names.

With six letters, the name Kandis 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 7.5% of all girls' 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 girls' names that begin with a K, Karen is the most common.
