92 Sophisticated Short Girl Names for your Sidekick!

short girl names

Short girl names have a crisp, cool sophistication. There’s just something very memorable and confident about a short first name.

I’ve known people who only named their kids single syllable names so that they didn’t end up with nicknames or because they had a really long last name.

Others just loved the look and sound of monosyllabic names like Gwen, Jade and Elle.

If you love shorter names, but are concerned about how they pair with middle name, just consider cadence when selecting a pair. Shorter names usually sound better with a middle name that is at least two syllables, such as, “Jade Nicole” as opposed to “Jade Elle”.

Whatever draws you to a single syllable name, I wanted to curate the best list of short names for girls for you to choose from.
