The first name 

Kior is a female first name. In some cases it's also given to boys.

Kior – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Kior in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Kior in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Kior by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Kior ranks at #5,294. That means there are 5,293 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 Kior.

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

It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Kior in the USA. Although the name is not sooooo rare overall, it is only at home in a few selected regions of the USA. In the entire United States there are currently a total of 83 women and girls named Kior, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 83 women and girls named Kior live in no more than 7 different states, including for example Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana and New Jersey. In all other 42 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Kior. (To explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five women with a specific name live in the same state. So, it’s quite possible that there are one or two states where someone with the name Kior lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Kior and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.).

And even there, only one in 180,882 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Kior.

Kior has 4 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 four letters, the name Kior is shorter than most other given names. In fact, only 5.5% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly four letters. Just 1.2% of all first names are even shorter, while 93% consist of more than four 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

If you take all the letters in the name Kior – K, i, o and r – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Kiro or others.
