The first name 

Kattie is a female first name.

Kattie – a very rare name!

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

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

Kattie -
a special name with a long history going back to the 19th century

Kattie is not an overly common name, in fact in some of the last 143 years it has been given so infrequently that it doesn't even show up in our statistics (here a name is only recorded in those years in which it was given to newborns at least five times). This was, for example, most recently the case in 2021, where the name Kattie was given at most four times in the entire USA, perhaps even less or not even once. (If you are Kattie and were born in the USA in 2021, please get in touch with us!) Before that, however, there was a time when the name was significantly more popular - way back in the 19th century, Kattie even made it into the top 1,000 of our SmartGenius statistics of the most popular girls' names: In 1881, it ranked on position 481 - a popularity it has never reached again since then.

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

Happy Birthday - 8 girls named Kattie celebrate their second birthday this year!

Although the name Kattie has a changeful history, it has clearly arrived in the present. In 2022, the name was given by young parents to their newborn children a remarkable 8 times and thus landed on position 9,733 in the SmartGenius ranking of the currently most popular female first names. However, the name is still so rare that the 8 girls with the name Kattie, who are celebrating their second birthday this year, can rightly feel very special, because it is highly likely that in their kindergarten they will be the only children with this name.

Kattie 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 Kattie 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.

Other names with
