The Best One Syllable Girl Names

Here is the ultimate list of my favorite pretty one syllable girl names, listed by genre:

Classic, Vintage One Syllable Girl Names

There’s no denying that vintage baby names are trending like crazy in 2022.

Here are some of my favorite vintage one syllable girl names that I think you’re going to love:

  • Rue – In English, the word rue refers to an herb that dons bunches of bright yellow flowers and is also known as herb-of-grace. In French, however, rue means both a road, and regret. 
  • June – June is a classic girl’s name that pays tribute to the early months of summer. This pretty, classic name has been climbing steadily in the baby name charts since 2008, recently finding itself as the 175th most popular baby name for girls in the US in 2021. 
  • Maeve – Love the name Mae, but looking for something with a fresh, modern edge? A baby name of Irish origin that means intoxicating, or she who rules, the name Maeve has seen quite the spike in popularity in recent years, likely because of the Netflix series, Sex Education, that stars a Maeve.
  • Viv – Viv is a rare girl’s name in the US. Stemming from Latin roots, the name Viv means lively, or to live.
  • Brooke – A small babbling stream, the name Brooke is of old English or Germanic origins. Most popular in the early 2000s, the name Brooke has fallen to position 259 in 2021. 
  • Ruth – The name Ruth is a Bible-based name that was wildly popular in the early 1900s, and still remains well-loved, ranking as the 189th most popular baby name for girls in 2021. The name Ruth means compassionate friend. Biblically, Ruth was a woman of fierce loyalty.
  • Beth – Beth is a short form of the name Elizabeth and means pledged to God.
  • Eve – Eve is a name of Hebrew origins that means life. While the name Eve ranked as the 485th most popular girl’s name in 2021, it’s fresh counterpart, Evie, ranks 294th.
  • Nell – The name Nell, which can also be spelled Nelle, is a classic, vintage girl’s name that means bright, shining one. A diminutive for a number of names like Helen and Eleanor, Nell could be really lovely as an honor name.
