  • It seems like many of today's parents-to-be are trying to steer clear of the most popular baby names lists and instead choosing something unusual. But a new baby-naming trend is on the rise: one syllable names.

    Not only are they a little less complicated than some of the unusual baby names out there, but they’re short, sweet and simplisitc, plus make a great accompaniment for one syllable surnames.

    So when MooseRoots, a genealogy research engine, released this list of the most popular one syllable baby names from 2014, we just had to share them with you.

    Using data from U.S. Social Security Administration, most of the one syllable names they found were classics like Tom and Joe, but there were also a few wackier ones thrown in the mix too, like Brynn and Chase.

    One syllable names are a great option for creating a double barrel baby name name, too – and if you and your partner are stuck between what name to choose for your little one, you can play our fun double-barrelled name game to help you choose.

    We think one syllable baby names make for a short and sweet sounding moniker, and it seems they’re becoming trendier than ever. If you like classics such as Samuel or Eleanor, but prefer the shortened versions, why not consider just naming them Sam or Ellie instead for that one syllable effect?
