The first name 

Keena is a first name for girls, occasionally also given to boys.

Keena – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Keena in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Keena in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Keena by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Keena ranks at #9,034. That means there are 9,033 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Keena.

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

Keena -
keeping with the times

Keena is a quite familiar phenomenon. Before 1900, the name wasn't really on the radar of expectant parents. It took a while, but then, unexpectedly, Keena cried out for attention, reaching rank 810 in 1972. So, schoolkids of the late 19th century probably didn't have classmates named Keena and it has never reached the top 100 list in our statistics, but for a while it became more and more fashionable in the last century, which makes Keena really in tune with her generation.

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

In proportion to the female population, most women and girls with the first name Keena live in Illinois, and even there the name is rather special – only one in 90,104 would turn around if you called the name Keena across Illinois.

Keena 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 Keena 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
