Simple Yet Unique Girls Names

User Rating: / 12

Are you looking for a baby girl name that is simple, yet unique? Many parents are searching for a short baby girl name for many reasons. If you have a long last name (3 or more syllables) then picking a longer first name might not be your initial choice. Longer names can often be easily shortened to nicknames but if you’re not interested in that option, a cute, hip first name would be your best bet. Also, pairing a short first name with an equally short last name can make for an interesting combo -- easy to remember and pleasing to the ear.
