Yuki is a very rare first name!

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

Yuki -
ahead of the curve

In fact, the name Yuki did not fit the trend of the last century. Young parents in the 2000s began to change that a bit. After several years of not being given at all (or less than 5 times, because that's the number required for a name to appear in the statistics), Yuki seemed to be more popular than ever in 2004. Although the name never ranked higher than #4,803, 56 parents chose it that year, making it a potential new rising star on the horizon of beautiful and rare names. If your name is Yuki, you are well on your way to becoming en vogue.

In years where the graph has no value, the name Yuki was given less than five times or even none at all in the entire USA.

Yuki in 2022 – originality welcome!

In 2022, expectant parents chose the yet rare name Yuki a few times. Among all babies it ranked #7,896 - with a total of 30 newborns. This means, as you can see above, that the name is still more common than it was most time of the last century, when it supposedly didn't appear at all for many years - giving children with this first name a sheen of something particularly contemporary and special.

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.
