2 letter baby names for boys & girls

Short 2-letter baby names for boys & girls

Looking for a super-short baby name? Maybe it’s to contrast with a longer first or middle name — or maybe you just want it to fit well onto a personalized license plate. No matter your reason, we have found more than 50 teeny tiny names for you to consider!

Apart from a few names, like Bo and Zé, most super-short two-letter baby names are usually nicknames or abbreviations. For example, you have the oldies-but-goodies like Ed (typically abbreviated names like Edward or Edwin) and Al (nicknames for names like Albert and Alan) — and then there are the mostly unisex initial names like JJ, DJ, TJ, etc.

We have tried to sort these lists to fall in line with the types of names typically used for boys or for girls, but of course, there are very few strict gender rules when it comes to naming your wee one.

Check out the 2-letter names below, and see if any sound like the perfect little fit!
