Short names have such a cool confidence about them. I didn’t expect everyone to love my post on sophisticated short girl names so much, but since you did – it seems only fair to also write one on the best short, single syllable boy names, too.
Fair is fair 😉
Single Syllable Boy Names I Love:
There are quite a few short boy names that were at the top of our lists when we were picking names. Luke, Kai and Blake were always favorites of mine.
It’s so interesting to me how parents end up picking names. I thought for sure my son would have a short first name, but he ended up with a monosyllable middle name instead: Jai, pronounced like Jay, in honor of my brother.
I will always love the sound of a short first name, though, so I’m hoping these inspire you and I can live vicariously through your one syllable baby name choice.
The Best Short Boy Names:
You are welcome to scroll down to see the list of names and/or watch the video with them below! I absolutely love the sweet baby pictures, too 🙂
Here’s the full list of the best, strongest boy names that are just one syllable long. These short names just might become your new favorites, so don’t forget to print the free baby name list tracker and start jotting down your faves.
Let’s get to it!
- Jack – Classic! Also on my vintage boy names post!
- Reign or Rainn
- Ren – Also featured on my list of 56 modern Japanese boy names!
Aren’t these names so fun? I just love so many of these.
Some of them sound like nicknames, but I actually like it when people just name their kid what they are going to call them.
It’s bold and cool and I like it.

Yeah. Ian didn’t make the list.
Ian is a great name, but it’s two syllables! I’ll have to write another short boy name list with two syllable names.
