The first name 

Nanie is a first name for girls.

Nanie – a very rare name!

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

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

Nanie -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Nanie a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Parents chose this name most often in 1881 – at that time, it landed at position 512 with 10 newborn girls receiving this special first name. This was the last peak in a world without airplanes, computers, rock music, or even television. Because Nanie is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always think to give their child this unusual name. So, if your name is Nanie, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, your name is what makes you stand out these days!

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

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

The first name Nanie is a true rarity among all women and girls currently living in the United States – only 46 Americans in total bear this name. And these 46 women are located in only three states: Kentucky, North Carolina and Virginia (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 Nanie 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 Nanie in relation to it’s female population is Kentucky. And yet even there, only one in 167,289 women would raise her hand if you asked, who is called Nanie.

Nanie has 5 letters 
and begins with an N

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter N is neither particularly common nor particularly rare as a first letter for girls' names: 4.1% of all common girls' names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters of girls' names are A and S, while X and U are the least common initials of girls' names.

With five letters, the name Nanie 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.

Thus, it follows that with 4.1% of all girls' names starting with an N, this initial letter occurs about as often as all 26 letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with N that are quite common, the most common in the U.S. at present is Nancy.

Other names with 
N, a, n, i and e

If you take all the letters in the name Nanie – N, a, n, i and e – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Annie or others.
