‘You only need one,’ as the saying goes. And when it comes to choosing the perfect baby name for a girl or boy, you really can stop at one syllable.

One-syllable names have a single, unbroken sound. Not to be confused with a nickname, these names proudly stand on their own. They can pack a punch or be calm and serene. Plus, it’s quicker when you’re calling out that dinner’s ready – for the hundredth time.
