Top 50 Two-Syllable Baby Names

User Rating: / 23

You are sure to find the perfect name in our list of the top 50 two-syllable baby names for girls and boys. When selecting a name for your child, it’s easy to get carried away by how that name is spelled, what letter it begins with or what nicknames might come of the name. And focusing on these areas can make it easy to forget about a very crucial component of your child’s name: how it sounds, specifically how it resonates with your last name.

Baby sitting up smilingNo matter what name you give your child, it’s very important to say it aloud before you make it official. Does that first name create a good melody with your surname? Do the first, middle and last names make a complementary trio? Syllables go a long way toward eliminating a problematic mouthful of a name… or creating one. In fact, two-syllable baby names often strike the best note with surnames that are not two syllables.

There are plenty of two-syllable surnames being used as first names that have a distinctly masculine feel – names like Johnson, Carter, Thompson, Walker, Brandon, Sawyer, Jonas, Jarrett. But two-syllable names aren’t limited to boys. In fact, the names (and their meanings) for girls and boys listed below have been drawn from the Social Security Administration’s top 100 baby names. Two-syllable names are obviously a very popular choice in today’s culture – something else to consider as well when naming your child.

Whatever name you choose for your child, the goal should be to decide upon a first name that will be suitable for an infant and an adult – your little one, after all, has to make do with their name for a lifetime.
