The first name 

Yetta is a first name for girls.

Yetta – a very rare name!

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

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

Yetta -
quite rare in all states

The odds of living in the same statae as someone named Yetta are about the same as meeting someone with blue eyes in the entire country – both odds are about 25 to 30 %. More precisely, the first name Yetta is registered in 11 states, among which are Connecticut, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland or Massachusetts. In proportion to the female population, most women and girls with the first name Yetta live in New York, and even there the name is rather special – only one in 7,815 would turn around if you called the name Yetta across New York.

Yetta has 5 letters 
and begins with a Y

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: The letter Y is pretty rare as an initial letter for girls' names: only 1.8% of all common girls' names in the US begin with Y. By the way, the most common first letters of girls' names are A, S and M, while Q, X and U are the least common initials of girls' names.

With five letters, the name Yetta 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.

Since 1.8% of all girls’ names begin with a Y, this initial occurs only about half as often as the other letters on average, but Y is by no means the rarest initial. And of course, there are single names with Y that are very popular, currently the most common girls’ name that starts with Y is Yvonne.

Other names with 
Y, e, t, t and a

If you take all the letters in the name Yetta – Y, e, t, t and a – and put them together again, you can form another name, such as Tayte.
