I struggled to pick out a name for my new baby girl. I wanted to find something simple, but still unique. It took quite a long time (right up til the day before she was born). So you don’t have the struggle I did, we are here to help! We have pulled together a list of 150 one syllable girl names to help make your decision easier.
You may be wondering, why one-syllable names? Sometimes you get lost in the names search, my friend was searching up every name list from the best Disney names, to names by month. It’s paralysis by analysis.
I personally love that many of the one syllable girl names have a soft and sweet sound to them. Another thing I love about a short first name is that it gives you many options when it comes to the middle name.
You can find our list of one syllable middle names for girls + more here! Many people believe that shorter first names emanate strength, as they seem decisive. They also have less of a chance of being shortened into a nickname, which many parents appreciate.

It just would not be right to create a list of names without including some of my personal favorites! I love classy one syllable girl names like Jo, Beth, and Mae that can be paired with so many others to make a two-part name.
Timeless One Syllable Girls Names
I adore these classic one syllable baby girl names! Plus, you just cannot go wrong with picking a name you know to be timeless. Many of these names have faded in popularity over time, but I think they might just be on the comeback!
Unique + Pretty One Syllable Girl Names
Some of these unique one syllable girl names you may have heard, but hopefully, some of the others will be new additions that you haven’t yet thought of! They take inspiration from all sorts of things, from nature to fruits and even other cultures.
Many of the most popular names in recent years have been 2 syllable girl names, so choosing one of these single syllable girl names provides uniqueness in that aspect as well.
