    I've heard boys with shorter syllables tend to be better received among their peers.
    So and Keith would be better received or potentially more popular than say an Sebastian.

    I agree with previous posters that one-syllable names can encompass a very wide variety of styles. When you say male names, do you mean exclusively male names, or just names used on males? For instance, Sloan is a 1-syllable unisex name, and Chris is a 1-syllable unisex nn, so would those be included, or are we talking more about Luke and Kurt?

    I think they just sound strong and masculine with no fluff. All boy on a boy who likes to play in the dirt and get messy and then all
    Manly on a man. That is my husband's criteria for a name..haha.

    1 Syllable names on males always make me envision football players, even more so with a one syllable last name. I remember hearing my friends talking about Brad Pitt and I chimed in "Isn't he a football player" man did they get a laugh out of that lol, I don't know my actors well. Brett Farve is another good example.

    1 syllable male names just seem more jockish and I'm not a fan of those since I never really liked jocks....

    For the misspelled = learning delays, it's probably because they just don't know how to spell their name, especially when they pick a word name like River and change it to Ryver but pn it the same. It must be confusing for the child, but I don't think it aims directly towards boys... I know my cousin Sumer had a little trouble understanding that the word summer is spelled with 2 m's. I don't know if it caused any huge learning delay, but a minor bump in the road.

    The only correlation I know I've read in articles is that A names tend to get better grades than C and D names. However, this I believe could be inaccurate since A names are very popular, which skews the results.
