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

In the entire United States there are currently a total of 397 women and girls named Nisa, but there are vast areas of the country where not a single person with this name can be found.

In all other 42 states, there are no – or, to be precise, less than a handful – women called Nisa. (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 Nisa lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Nisa and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics.).

Nisa 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 Nisa 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.
