Four-syllable baby names carry an elaborate charm and provide the perfect balance for a short last name.

Four-syllable names that have ranked near the top of the charts in recent years include Olivia and Isabella for girls and Alexander for boys. Along with Olivia and Isabella, other four-syllable names ranking in the US Top 1000 for girls include Angelina, Ariana, Elizabeth, Valentina, and Victoria. Along with Alexander, other high-ranking four-syllable boy names include Antonio, Giovanni, and Jeremiah.

Unique four-syllable names we recommend include Aurelius and Octavius for boys, Persephone and Raphaela for girls, and Indiana and Oleander for either gender.

Four-syllable baby names may prove to be a lot of name for a youngster to carry, but many four-syllable names come with shorter, cuter nicknames. Elizabeth may be Liz or Bess, Alexander Alex or Xan, and Leonora Lena or Nora.
