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:
I rounded up a 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!

I love talking about baby names! After writing a bunch of baby name posts, I decided to write a baby name ebook! With thousands of names by style and origin, plus it has over 10 baby name lists NOT on the blog. There’s also lots of freebies, like a baby name list tracker, a hospital bag checklist, the best baby books, the best movies to watch while pregnant, and much more!!
Grab it on Amazon or click below – for less than the price of two coffees!
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.
Which of these names are your favorites? Tell me in the comments below!
