Yoni is a male first name. In very rare cases it is also used for girls.
There’s a good chance that a boy named Yoni in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Yoni in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 boys is named Yoni by his parents. In the ranking of most common boys names in recent years, Yoni ranks at #4,757. That means there are 4,756 more common boys 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 Yoni.
In not even one in five states you will find more than 4 men and boys with the name Yoni. This first name might not be completely unknown, but in the entire United States, there are about 152 Americans who bear this name. And these 152 men and boys named Yoni live in no more than 6 different states, including for example California, Florida, Georgia, New York and North Carolina. In the other 44 states, there are either none or less than a handful boys and men with this name (to explain: The official statistics provide the data per state only if at least five men 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 Yoni lives although the name is not listed in the official statistics. Should you be one of those rare people whose name is Yoni and you live outside the states highlighted on the map, please let us know so we can improve our statistics). The state with the most boys and men named Yoni relative to its male population is California. And even there, only one male in 138,045 would raise his hand if you asked, who is called Yoni.
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 boys' names: only 1.7% of all common boys' names in the US begin with Y. By the way, the most common first letters of boys' names are J, A and D, while X, U and Q are the least common initials of boys' names.
With four letters, the name Yoni 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.
Since 1.7% of all boys’ names begin with a Y, this initial occurs less than 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 boys’ name that starts with Y is Yahir.
If your name is Yoni 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...
So that everyone really understands you when you have to spell the name Yoni, you can simply say:

These flags are used for maritime communication - each flag represents a letter.
In the navy, sailors of two ships might wave flags to each other to send messages. A sailor holds two flags in specific positions to represent different letters.
In Morse code, letters and other characters are represented only by a series of short and long tones. For example, a short tone followed by a long tone stands for the letter A. Yoni sounds like this:
