The first name 
Katrine

Katrine is a first name for girls.

Katrine – a very rare name!

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

Katrine -
swimming against the tide

If your name is Katrine your parents may be very proud to let their daughter swim against the tide: The name Katrine never ranked higher than position 2,281 in our statistics, and for many years not a single parent had the creative idea of naming their daughter Katrine. But something caused mothers and fathers in 1915 to choose the name more often than usual - only compared to the rest of the time, of course. You probably still won't find many children named Katrine because that was several decades ago - unless, of course, you have some very creative parents in the neighborhood.

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

2021 - looking for Katrine?

As in the last century, Katrine still proves to be very exceptional. In 2021, for example, it was not given once in the entire U.S. - or, to be more precise, it was given at most four times, because names given less than five times in one year are not included in the official statistics. So if you know someone named Katrine who was born in 2021, please let us know - we would be very interested in hearing about it so that we can provide you with even more accurate statistics.

Katrine -
at home in California and New York

Meeting a woman or girl named Katrine is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Katrine can be found in only two: California and New York. No other state currently has residents named Katrine. However, we must admit that 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 quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Katrine living in one state or another. (If your name is Katrine and you live outside of California or New York, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Katrine is in New York, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in New York, only 0.00008% of all female residents are called Katrine – that’s just one in 1,185,717! And even in all the states, California and New York, combined there are only a total of 15 women going by that name. So, if your name is Katrine, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.

Katrine has 7 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 seven letters, the name Katrine has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight 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.
