You've seen long baby names, super-modern baby names, all-American baby names, superhero baby names, old-fashioned baby names and nearly everything in between. But what about simple, short-and-sweet baby names?
Pulled from the most recent popular names in the United States list released by the Social Security Administration, these single- or two-syllable names might just be perfect for your baby girl or boy.
These little names may seem simple, but you can't deny they make a big impact. Not only do they pair beautifully with most middle and last names, but they also stand out among the longer names that have been in fashion lately. Which one will you choose for your baby-to-be?
Fourteen percent of the 500 most-popular baby boy names consist of a single syllable. Try out these one-syllable gems with middle names of varying length — for example, John Alexander vs. John James or Cole Sebastian vs. Cole Tate. The shorter names, listed here in order of popularity, include both traditional and trendy monikers.
One-syllable names are far less common for girls. Among the 500 most-popular baby girl names, a mere 5 percent are single-syllable — apparently, little names are more often reserved for the middle spot with girls. Test out the sound of these popular ones (again, listed in order of popularity) with your last name and with various middles.
Of course, single-syllable names aren't your only option. It's easy to fall in love with one of these sweet little names — just three letters each — from the 1,000 most popular baby girl names list.
