The first name 
Kimiyo

Kimiyo is a female first name.

Kimiyo – a very rare name!

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

Kimiyo -
at home in California and Hawaii

Meeting a woman or girl named Kimiyo is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Kimiyo can be found in only two: California and Hawaii. No other state currently has residents named Kimiyo. 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 Kimiyo living in one state or another (if your name is Kimiyo and you live outside of California or Hawaii, 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 Kimiyo is in Hawaii, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in Hawaii, only 0.01269% of all female residents are named Kimiyo – that’s just one in 7,880! And even in all these states combined there are only a total of 67 women with that name. So, if your name is Kimiyo, chances are you will never meet another woman with your beautiful first name.

Kimiyo 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 Kimiyo 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.
