Keeping it short and simple
There’s a lot to be said for giving a boy a strong, ‘no nonsense’ name.
When it comes to choosing a name for your child often the best things do come in small packages - especially if you have a longer surname.
Short and sweet
Many of the names that prove ever popular with parents year after year only have one syllable with Jack and George providing perfect examples of names that continue to stand the test of time.
If you’re looking for a name that won’t be turned into a nickname you could also consider already shortened versions like Sam, Max, Jake, Finn and Ben.
Many biblical names are also ‘short but sweet’, you could also take a leaf out of the big book itself with names such as Paul, Saul, Mark, Seth, Luke, John, Caine, Jude and Joel.
If you’re looking for a more unusual moniker for your little chap Kai, Sky, Kyle, Dax and Grey make interesting alternative options.
