Super-short and super-sweet names for little ladies
They say the best things come in small packages and when it comes to names, some of the shortest names can also make some of the sweetest.
Many of the more ‘old fashioned’ names with a vintage flavour are short but sweet and work particularly well with a longer surname.
Grace, Pearl, Rose, Eve and Anne are all timeless names that make pretty options for little ladies.
If you’re looking to avoid other people shortening your baby's name you might want to consider a name which is already used as a shortened version like Kate, Beth or Liz.
Virtues with meaning
You could also take inspiration from virtues themselves with Faith, Hope and Joy – all meaningful names that are also short.
