One-Syllable Given Names for Girls

Names that are "short and sweet" are often very desirable for a girl, especially in the middle name spot to complement a long first name. What are some viable names that only have one-syllable? I'm sure you can think of a few, but how many are full names and not nicknames?

Let's see if we can list as many one-syllable full-names as possible! Let me know if I have missed any or if any should be removed because they are just too nicknamey. Although some may double as a nickname and a stand-alone name. This is where it gets tricky! For instance, you can be just "Gwen" but that could potentially be a nickname for Gwendolyn. I will include it anyway.

Here is a short list of girl names for those who want the more common choices pointed out among the more unusual names on the list:

Anne, Bea, Belle, Beth, Blanche, Blythe, Bree, Brooke, Claire, Dawn, Elle, Eve, Faith, Fawn, Faye, Gail, Gwen, Hope, Jade, Jane, Jean, Jill, Joy, June, Kay, Lane, Leigh, Lux, Maeve, Maude, May, Moon, Naomh, Niamh, Paige, Pearl, Rae, Raine, Rose, Ruth, Sage, Shea, Skye, Snow, Tess, True, Wren, Wynne

These are names that would work on a girl, whether they're feminine or unisex. Click here to view the list of one-syllable boy names! However, there may be duplicates on both lists.

Kyle is a two syllable names

I suppose it depends on where you are from and how you say it. Sounds like one-syllable to me. Maybe 1.5.

Several of these names are traditionally male and a few are more than one syllable if pronounced correctly (traditionally).
