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 , or rize ?) ree-sah
Many of these names also happen to be unisex, so they appear on the
