Kourtni is a female first name.
There’s a good chance that a girl named Kourtni in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Kourtni in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Kourtni by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Kourtni ranks at #8,231. That means there are 8,230 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 Kourtni.
It is not so easy to find a woman or girl named Kourtni 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 85 women and girls named Kourtni, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found. In fact, the 85 women and girls named Kourtni live in no more than 9 different states, including for example California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois or Indiana. In all the other states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Kourtni. (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 Kourtni lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Kourtni and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.). The state with the most girls and women named Kourtni relative to its female population is Texas. And even there, only one in 394,832 women and girls would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Kourtni.
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 seven letters, the name Kourtni has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight 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.

In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
