    Modern, one syllable girl names

    One syllable girl names are appealing to me. They are short and sweet and easy to say.
    Names like Brooke, Paige and Claire are pretty, but seem dated to me. Those ones are not my favorites, but names like that.
    There are a few of these names on my list, but I am looking for fresh ideas. What are some that you like?

    Hm, defining modern is so hard. I love the name Kay, but that's either extremely dated or ready for a fresh look. Same with Jane and Joy.

    Boyish names would be Del, Rex, Troy, Gray, Reece, Tate, or Finn.
    Word names people have been going for are ones like Bliss, Snow, Free, True, Fern, Fleur, Skye, and Rain.
    Vintage charm would be the ones above plus Blythe, Eve, June, Bea, Anne, Elle, Maeve, Pearl, Ruth, Wynne, and May.
    There's also Blair, Brie, Bryn, Sloane, Gwen, or Grace.
