The first name 

Nira is a female first name. In very rare cases it is also used for boys.

Nira – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Nira in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Nira in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Nira by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Nira ranks at #7,378. That means there are 7,377 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 Nira.

Nira -
a Dinosaur?

Is the name Nira a dinosaur? We would say: It's classic! Chosen by 207 parents, the name was given most frequently in 1933 – at that time, it ranked #430. It thus experienced its last peak in a world without internet and cell phones, even before the first personal computer was built. (Do you remember? Those were those big boxes that couldn't even begin to do what a simple robot vacuum cleaner can do today). Since Nira is both classic and fancy at the same time, people didn't always come up with the idea of giving their child this unusual name. So, if your name is Nira, feel classic and not old-fashioned, because after all, you stand out with your name these days!

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

Nira has 4 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 four letters, the name Nira 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.

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.
