One-Syllable Girl Names: Kate, Sage, Wren, Maeve

Looking for a girl name that’s short and to-the-point? Something that might work particularly well as a middle name?

Check out this list of several hundred one-syllable girl names. (And click on any name to see its popularity graph!)

Please note that I did include names in the gray area between one syllable and two syllables. The deciding factor on these particular names will be your own interpretation/accent, so be sure to test the names out loud before making any final decisions. (“Hayle,” for instance — would you say it like Hale, or like Hailey? Or “Rise” — is it rize, or ree-sah?)

Many of these names also happen to be unisex, so they appear on the One-Syllable Boy Names list as well.

What’s your favorite one-syllable girl name?

  1. I’ve got a Baby Maeve! I love that name. My maiden name is Blake, and so I never thought I’d have to really ponder what names to give my kids. Then I married a three syllable German nightmare surname and short little names became my friend.

  2. I’ve been struggling to think of a decent one syllable girls name to use as a middle name. Now I have one! Rose. Thanks!
