The first name 

Kandy is a female first name. In very rare cases it is also used for boys.

Kandy – a very rare name!

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

You won't believe all there is 
to discover about the name

Kandy -
special, but at home in many states

You may not know anyone named Kandy, but there’s a good chance you live in the same state as someone with that name. In fact, 31 states are home to women and girls named Kandy. (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 Kandy living in one state or another. If your name is Kandy 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 Ohio, which has the most people named Kandy relative to the population, you still have to ask 22,529 women and girls their names before you hear Kandy as an answer just once.

Kandy 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 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 five letters, the name Kandy 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 7.5% 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.

Other names with 
K, a, n, d and y

If you take all the letters in the name Kandy – K, a, n, d and y – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Kadyn or others.

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...
