Along with Liam, other Top 100 boy names that contain two syllables include Noah, Jacob, Lucas, Ethan, Jackson, Owen, Ezra, Henry, Leo, and Wyatt. Internationally, two-syllable names including Bruno, Gaia, Marceau, and Signe are among the most fashionable choices.

Unique two syllable names we love include Anouk, Celeste, Orla, and Tessa. For boys, our favorite unique two syllable names include Booker, Forrest, Linus, and Remy.

Two syllable baby names tend to sound best with surnames that are, well, NOT two syllables. If you feel that a two-syllable name would strike the right balance with your shorter or longer last name, here are a selection of the best.
