The first name 

Kenli is a first name for girls.

When two girls called Kenli meet...

… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Kenli is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 2 out of 100,000 girls have been named Kenli. In the SmartGenius ranking, Kenli is #4,367 on the list of most common girls names. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Kenli.

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

Kenli -
at home only in a few regions of the USA

The first name Kenli is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 73 Americans in total bear this name. And these 73 women are located in only four states: Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana and Texas (it should be noted that the official statistics provide the data per state only if there are at least 5 women with this name in the state. So, if your name is Kenli and you live outside the states marked on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most girls and women named Kenli in relation to it’s female population is Texas. And yet even there, only one in 204,727 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Kenli.

Kenli 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 Kenli 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, e, n, l and i

If you take all the letters in the name Kenli – K, e, n, l and i – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Kenil or others.
