Three Letter Names That Are Short But Oh-So Sweet - Real Mom Recs

Three Letter Names That Are Short But Oh-So Sweet

Fun fact: If baby number 4 had been a girl, his name was going to be Mae. Our reason for picking such a short and sweet name was because our third child, Elle, turned us on to simple, one-syllable names. We thought one of our favorite super short, three letter names was the way to go for a few reasons:

  • For one, you can’t shorten it, which is great if you want to avoid having the world call your kid a shortened nickname that you don’t like.
  • If you have a big family like ours, shorter names make it less cumbersome to list off everyone or write everyone’s name.
  • Short names work best with our three-syllable last name.

Whatever your reason is for wanting a short and sweet baby name, there are more than you think to choose from! Here is a list of 65 three letter names for girls and boys.
