Information about Names by Length

Finding the perfect name might be an overwhelming task. On a personal level, names carry such deep meanings because they are what shape our identity. When choosing a name, it is wise to start by writing down different qualities that the ideal name should have. This makes decision-making easier and helps to prevent confusion and stress that can arise when our options seem limitless. With some fixed characteristics, our options are narrowed down, and it is much more likely you will find a name that you really connect with.

For example, one of the characteristics could be name length. Shorter names may be preferred to match lengthy or double-barrelled last names or when opting for a name that is easy to spell and pronounce. Indeed, short names make an excellent middle name as well. 3 or 4 letter names are not super commonly used as first names, but it is definitely a growing trend. Most people might be used to having shorter nicknames than their first name. However, with a shorter first name, the nickname may often be longer. For example, a boy named Bob might also be referred to as Bobby.

Long first names have character and often sound powerful and elegant. Long first names like Maximilian, Christopher, and Elizabeth are often old-fashioned and origin from different dynasties that once ruled the world. Longer first names go well with a shorter last names. However, a long last name should not always stop you from choosing a longer first name. Here comes the biggest advantage of having a long name - there can be so many options for nicknames. For example, nicknames for Elizabeth could be Eli, Ellie, Elsie, Beth, Betty, or Betsy.
