About 10 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 versus John James or Cole Sebastian versus Cole Tate. The 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 3 percent are single-syllable — mainly because little names are typically reserved for the middle spot. Try these popular monikers (again, listed in order of popularity) with your last name and with various middle names.
Of course, single-syllable names aren't your only sweet-and-simple option. Fall in love with one of these sweet little names — just three letters each — from the 1,000 most popular baby girl names list.
