Looking for a smooth, unpretentious baby name? These relaxed baby names may just be what you’re looking for.
These chilled-out baby names are not only relaxed, but flow well with just about any middle or last name you want to pair them with.
Forget trendy baby names, or classic names that, while cool, may be a bit clunky, and turn to these baby names that may fit the bill.
What’s in a name?
Plenty of vowels help these baby names roll along nicely, and give them a really lovely rhythm. These names are also, for the most part, short and sweet, which means they work well with just about any middle and last name.
Baby names can be long and elaborate, or short and simple. These names are short, but we wouldn’t go so far as to say they are typical of shorter names. We think these names have a really easy-on-the-ear sound that will grow with your baby and sound great as he makes his way in the world as an adult. Wouldn’t you agree?
