Tri-syllable names

Longer names, such as Amelia and Olivia are proving ever popular with parents, as they continually top our top 100 popular name list. Thinking about those long names we decided to compile a list of those gorgeous names that that work well with both short and long surnames. So if you are a Smith or a Smythe-Jones, there's something for everyone. 

Popular choices

Some other three syllable names currently in vogue amongst parents are Jessica, Sophia and Isabelle, which were all amongst the top 25 most popular girls' names last year.   

Best for abbreviations 

If you're looking for the 'best of both worlds' you may want to choose a longer name that also has a shorter version. Classic options here are Matilda (Tilly), Abigail (Abi) , Elizabeth (Liz/Beth), Bethany (Beth) and Annabelle (Anna) that will all give you that little girl/big girl transition option. 

With a twist

Other, more unusual longer names which are sure to get your little lady noticed are Delilah, Melody, Liberty, Aurora, Tiffany and Angelica.
