to discover about the name

Toni -
at home in every state from California to New York

The name Toni may not be in the top rankings of the most popular girls’ names, but it is one of the few female given names, along with only 536 others, that can be found in every single state in the U.S. from Alaska to Florida and from California to New York. Of course, the name occurs more frequently in some states than in others – and Toni is apparently especially popular in Wyoming. Although the name is not one of the top 100 most popular women’s names here either, one in 671 women in Wyoming is called Toni. In total, that’s 287 women who feel addressed when the name Toni is shouted loudly across Wyoming and who ensure that their name makes it to #196 in our SmartGenius ranking of the most common female names in this nice state. If you asked all women in the entire U.S. for their first name, you would hear Toni as the answer a total of 95,890 times. This places Toni at #343 in our SmartGenius statistics for the most popular women’s names in the whole of the USA. This is true for all currently living women across all states and age groups – the recent popularity of the name Toni as a baby name is, of course, a bit different, as you can see from the statistics above.

Toni has 4 letters 
and begins with a T

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter T is a quite popular first letter for girls' names. Because: 6.3% of all common girls’ names in the US begin with this letter. By the way, the most common first letters for girls’ names are A, S and M.

With four letters, the name Toni 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.

With 6.3% of all girls' names that begin with a T, this first letter is thus much more common than all 26 letters on average - and the most popular one of all the girls’ names starting with T is Teresa.
