Single syllable baby girl names
Who says you can't have a unique and feminine sounding girl's name with only one syllable. While it seems that boy's tend to have shorter first names shorter girl's names have also become more common. Some of these include:
• Beth • Anne • Brooke • Elle • Leigh • Blaire • Dawn • Gail • Gwen • Jen • Jill • Joy • June • Sloan • Kim • Liv • Lynn • May • Page • Eve • Jean • Rose • Ruth
As with boy's names there are options to shortening longer baby girl's names into one syllable. Some examples include:
• Kate (Katherine) • Dee (Deeanna) • Kim (Kimberly) • Dot (Dorothy) • Jill (Jillian) • Pat (Patricia) • Sue (Susan) • Bell (Isabella) • Liz (Elizabeth)
If you are looking for unique baby names, it is hard to beat the unusual choices of celebrity baby names. A couple short celebrity baby names include: • Victoria and David Beckam's son Cruz. • Demi Moore and Bruce Willis's daughter Scout. • Matt Lauer and Johnny Depp both choose the name Jack for their sons.
Over the years single syllable names have even made the top ten most popular baby name lists with organizations such as the Social Security Administration, but these are few and far between. The first year the SSA started tracking names, single syllable baby names on the most popular list included Joe, John, James, Frank, George and Fred for boys and only one name for girls – Grace. The name Grace and John still remain on the most popular list by the SSA in 2007.
