@ Mary, I actually really like the name Ash, I'm on this list looking for a middle name and I think that's what I've decided on. Ash like the tree "for you my child I wish two things, to give you roots & to give you wings" my favorite quote and the "theme" if you will, for my child's full name.

After being raised with 3 other children wil 2 syllabel names i decided for a four syllabell name but now I have changed my mind completly

Erica September 10, 2012 | 8:17 AM

I had to comment for all of those that can't see that this entire list with the exception of Gia and possibly Maeve is comprised of one syllable names.

Christian September 05, 2012 | 4:20 PM

I thought the list was helpful. After choosing a 4-syllable name for my daughter, I really wanted a short middle name. Never thought of Claire, but after seeing it on this list, I am highly considering it!

Mary July 02, 2012 | 10:10 PM

Ash, Fleur, Rain, Mare! You want someone to name their daughter a female horse. Hale- that will go over well about 4th-6th grade and any poor Lys will be trying to get people to pronounce her name correctly her entire life and Gray, a mildly depressing color. Do your child a favor and ignore this list. Even with a last name of several syllables you can do better.

Having raised four kids, I found a three-syllable minimum necessary to properly round up an errant child. Otherwise, for me, dipping into the middle name became necessary. :)

Karen March 06, 2012 | 5:41 AM

Gia, for example, has 2 syllables... It's short, but not one syllable...

Brandon March 01, 2012 | 5:27 PM

All of these names are one syllable! I have no idea what everyone else is talking about.

Milly February 28, 2012 | 9:20 AM

Am I missing something? All of the names listed above are one syllable. Did they remove some names that were not?

Elle February 26, 2012 | 3:57 PM

Where did you learn to count?

cg December 03, 2011 | 6:16 AM

I have to agree with the people who commented on the syllables. Several of these names have more than one.

Chris June 26, 2011 | 4:55 PM

Anyone else notice the "top 10" points in this article only has 8 points in it?? :-/

shufflebuns June 01, 2011 | 9:32 AM

did the person who wrote this article know what "syllable" even meant? i counted alot of two syllable names.....

Gargi January 18, 2011 | 3:31 AM

Nice to have baby names with one syllable names.

Shajitha January 18, 2011 | 1:54 AM

Wow this is really super one syllable names i find it. actually i am pregnancy girl. this baby names are useful and i am very happy.Thanks for the site.

April January 12, 2011 | 6:36 PM

Oh yeah, its better to have baby names that are one syllable names. Its easier to call out our babies and catch their attention with just one syllable names. I cant imagine how to catch my breath after shout a 3-5 syllable baby name.

Rebekah November 21, 2010 | 6:18 PM

I agree. Those names are NOT one syllable. I'm looking for syllable, not length.
