In and up and around the letter K

Sometime in my senior year of high school I came to the realization that all the girls I knew had their first names start with the letter K— or were only one letter off. I guess you become obsessed with statistics and patterns at a given age— and I was not immune to it.

I knew all kinds of J names:

  • Jamie
  • Jan
  • Janine
  • Jean
  • Jeannie
  • Jenifer
  • Jenni
  • Jill
  • Jody
  • Joni

And I think I knew probably every combination of Laura:

  • Lara
  • Larna
  • Laura
  • Lauren
  • Laurie
  • Lora
  • Lori

Not only did I know a lot of K names, but many of them I knew in multiples:

  • Kara
  • Karen
  • Kathleen
  • Kathryn
  • Kathy
  • Kelly
  • Kim
  • Kimberly
  • Kirsten
  • Kristin

In fact… I even dated someone to whom I nick-named "K" (but I'll save that for another post).

Do you notice any patterns to the people you know?
