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?
[Latest Update: June 2021]
When you sign your first name, you use one hand. But when you type it, chances are you need to use both hands — even if your name is a short as Emma, Gus or Ty.
Have you ever wondered which names can be touch-typed on the standard QWERTY keyboard with one hand only? Me too, so I came up with some lists…
Left-handed baby names
- Ace, Ada, Adeva, Aqsa, Asa, Ava
- Babette, Barbara, Barrett, Baxter, Bess, Bette, Brad, Brett
- Cade, Caesar, Cara, Carter, Casara, Case, Cass, Cesar, Cresta
- Dara, Dave, Dawes, Dax, Debra, Dee, Dessa, Dexter, Drew
- Ed, Edgar, Edward, Egas, Esta, Estes, Etta, Eva, Eve, Everard, Everett, Evette, Ezra
- Freeda, Fred, Fredda
- Gage, Garret, Garrett, Gerard, Grace, Greg, Greta, Grete, Gretta
- Rebeca, Rebecca, Reece, Reed, Reese, Retta, Reva, Rewa, Rex
- Sabra, Sage, Sara, Sardar, Stassa, Steve, Stewart, Svea
- Tad, Taggart, Ted, Tara, Tate, Tera, Teresa, Tess, Tessa, Tex, Trace, Tracee
- Vada, Varda, Varvara, Vera, Verree, Vesta, Vester
- Wade, Wafa, Ward, Wes
- Zada, Zara, Zed
How funny is it that Dexter, which comes directly from the Latin word for “right,” is typed with the left hand only?
Right-handed baby names
- Jill, Ji-Min, Jim, Jimi, Jimmy, Jin, Jo, John, Johnny, Jon, Joni, Joy, Juho, Juli, Julio, Jun, Juno
- Kiki, Kim, Kimi, Kimiko, Kimmy, Kimo, Kip, Kiyoko, Kojo, Kollin, Kumiko, Kyou
- Lili, Lilly, Lilou, Lilikoi, Lily, Lin, Lino, Loki, Loni, Lonny, Lou, Lulu, Lyn, Lynn
- Miki, Mikki, Mikko, Milly, Milo, Mimi, Min, Minh, Miyu, Molly, Momoko
- Nik, Nikhil, Niki, Nikki, Niko, Nikol, Nikon, Niilo, Nuno
- Olli, Olujimi, Om
- Phil, Philip, Phillip, Pio, Polly, Poppy
- Yoko, Yuko, Yumi, Yumiko
I realize that QWERTY “handedness” is not a major baby-naming factor for most people, but I do think it would be cute to pair a one-handed name with another one-handed name — maybe a surname (Teresa Garza, Phillip Hill) or a twin name (Edward & John, Grace & Lily, Zara & Milo). What do you think?
