The first name 

Yuki is a unisex first name. It is given slightly more often to girls than to boys.

Yuki is a very rare first name!

At least in the US, the name Yuki is extremely rare. Recently, only a handful of babies has been named Yuki each year. That means it’s extremely unlikely that a boy or girl called Yuki will meet someone with the same name. So, Yuki is a very special name! If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Yuki.

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

Yuki has 4 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 first names: only 1.6% of all common first names in the US begin with Y. By the way, the most common first letters of given names are A, J and K, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of first names.

With four letters, the name Yuki 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 1.6% of all first 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.
