There are so many things to consider when choosing the right name for your child. One thing that many families think about is the number of syllables in a name.

Why choose a one-syllable boy name?

Choosing a short name for a boy with one syllable is a popular option these days! One syllable baby boy names are a fun and easy option for a variety of families. Single syllable names flow easily with and compliment many last names, and include classics and trendy options too.

Single syllables often also makes names more easy to pronounce, and they also make excellent middle names! Boy middle names that are one syllable are often the perfect bridge between longer first and last names.

Short First Names Make Great Baby Names

I hope this list of one syllable boy names helped you find the perfect fit for your own baby boy’s name! Short baby names are great if you would prefer not to have a longer first name.

I loved the idea of a short first name for my second child, which was one of the reasons I chose a one-syllable baby name for him (Grey, the shortened form of the more popular Greyson). I wanted a unique name, and toyed with the idea of using it as a short middle name too.

I struggled to narrow down my list! In case you’re curious, here were my personal favorite single-syllable name choices for my little guy:

Grey

Crew

Knox

Cruz

Huck

Bear
