The first name 

Kano is a first name for boys.

Kano – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a boy named Kano in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Kano in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Kano by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Kano ranks at #5,613. That means there are 5,612 more common boys names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer.

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

Kano has 4 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 four letters, the name Kano is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four 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

If you take all the letters in the name Kano – K, a, n and o – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Akon or others.
