Yetzali is a first name for girls.
… it’s a special occasion. That’s because the name Yetzali is quite rare in the US. While it’s still a name in use, lately, only approximately 2 out of 100,000 girls have been named Yetzali. In the SmartGenius ranking, Yetzali is #4,420 on the list of most common girls names. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Yetzali.
Meeting a woman or girl named Yetzali is something really special. Out of all 50 states, women and girls named Yetzali can be found in only two: California and Texas. No other state currently has residents named Yetzali. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if there are at least five people with that name living in that state – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Yetzali living in one state or another. (If your name is Yetzali and you live outside of California or Texas, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know so we can refine our statistics even further.) Either way, the name is quite rare. The best chance of meeting a Yetzali is in California, as there live more women and girls with this name in relation to the population than in any other state. But even here in California, only 0.00056% of all female residents are called Yetzali – that’s just one in 179,842! And even in all the states, California and Texas, combined there are only a total of 103 women going by that name. So, if your name is Yetzali, chances are you will never meet another woman sharing your beautiful first name.
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 seven letters, the name Yetzali has a typical length for first names in the US. In fact, 26% of all common first names consist of exactly seven letters. 52% of all first names are shorter, while 22% have eight letters or more. 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.
If your name is Yetzali and someone asks after your name, you can of course just tell them what it is. But sometimes that isn't so easy - what if it's too loud, and you don't understand them well? Or what if the other person is so far away that you can see them but not hear them? In these situations, you can communicate your name in so many other ways: you call spell it, sign it, or even use a flag to wave it...
