Trending: Shortest, Sweetest Baby Names

June 2, 2016 Linda Rosenkrantz

Mini names are having a moment. Mia and Ava rank in the US girls’ Top Ten, and names like Max and Leo, Ian and Eli, are all popular for boys. It’s a minimalist approach to naming children, and a stylish one, too. So which little names are the next big thing? Here are the rising stars of this category, in three letters or less.

Rex and Rey

Boy names that rule, like King and Messiah, are on the rise. Factor in the mini names trend, and it’s no surprise we’re meeting boys called Rex – the Latin word for king, and Rey, the Spanish equivalent. Rey is also the name of the (female) hero from the new Star Wars series. Rex ranks Number 682, and Rey, Number 903.
