One syllable names for boys

Keep your little boy's name short and sweet

Keeping it short and simple

There’s a lot to be said for giving a boy a strong, ‘no nonsense’ name.


Small packages 

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 SamMaxJakeFinn and Ben.

Biblical bonuses

Many biblical names are also ‘short but sweet’, you could also take a leaf out of the big book itself with names such as PaulSaulMarkSethLukeJohn, CaineJude and Joel.

Individual style

If you’re looking for a more unusual moniker for your little chap KaiSky, Kyle, Dax and Grey make interesting alternative options.
