Short stuff: One syllable baby names for girls

Sometimes, all you need is a short name — a single-syllable name that serves as just a breath, just a beat — in your baby’s full name.

Whether you are looking for a one-syllable name to use for her first name, as part of her first name, or as a middle name, we have 100 short and sweet baby girl names right here!

You should have no problem finding a name that will give your child’s full name the perfect rhythm.

While there are no universal rules for choosing a name for your little one, many people suggest selecting first and middle names based on your last name.

For instance, if you have a long and/or multi-syllable surname, a shorter first name may provide a nice balance.

Another tip is to vary the number of syllables among the words you choose. If you have a two-syllable last name, you might want to pick a one- or three-syllable first name. Three-syllable last name? A one- or two-syllable baby name might just do the trick.

Don’t forget: One syllable girl baby names can often make really cute compound names, particularly if you use suffixes like Jo, Leigh/Lee or Rae — and the retro favorites Sue and Lou (think Peggy Sue and Betty Lou).

On the list in the table below, you can sort the names alphabetically or by name length, and also search. 30 rows are shown by default, but you can view all the rows, or page through the baby names.
