+700 Cute Two Syllable Girl Names

Beautiful 2 Syllable Girl Names Worth Stealing!

On the hunt for the perfect name for your baby girl? Check out this list of two syllable girl names for some inspiration!  When you’re deciding on a baby name, it’s helpful to say it out loud so you can hear how it sounds.

You’ll want to note how many syllables the name has (including middle names and last names). This can give you some idea of what kind of baby name you want. 

For instance, if you have a longer last name with many syllables, you might want to balance it out with a shorter first name that’s only one or two syllables. 

It’ll help you pick a name that just rolls right off the tongue and sounds perfect together!

There’s just something so sweet, simple, and easy-going about two syllable baby girl names. There’s a great variety to choose from (this list has over 700 ) and they’re not too long or too short. 

I wanted to create the definitive list of two-syllable names for girls so you don’t have to keep searching so you’ll find a great mix of everything from unique two-syllable girl names to more classic and traditional girl names and everything in between, plus I’ve included their meanings and origins as well.

You’ll notice two syllable girl names are very popular and many names on the Official Social Security Website’s top 10 names list for 2020 fall into this category (like : Emma, Ava, Mia, Evelyn, and Harper).

That’s half the list!

WRAPPING UP TWO SYLLABLE GIRL NAMES AND MEANINGS


I hope this list of 2 syllable baby girl names has given you ample inspiration on your baby name journey! I know it can be tough to find just the right one (especially one that suits both parents’ tastes).

But, if you both can at least agree on choosing a two-syllable girl name, it makes things a lot easier because there’s so much variety to choose from like:

  • two syllable girl names ending in a
  • vintage two syllable girl names
  • gender neutral two syllable girl names
  • unique 2 syllable girl names
  • unusual two syllable girl names

That’s just a few varieties of the multiple different kinds of names on this list (not to mention the many different countries and origins).

Whatever name you choose will be perfect! If it feels right, then it probably is.

A word of advice, if you finally decide on a name, you may not want to share it with close family or friends until the big reveal.

Negative opinions may confuse you all the more.

As long as you and your partner love the name, everybody else will get on board too!

SHARING IS CARING!
