One Syllable Loves

Today I had some free time, so spent it looking once more through the 2011 data. In the end, I found myself compiling the below list which is of the most popular one syllable name for each letter (save for the vowels and y).

It’s an intriguing list, with less nicknames than you may initially think.

B – Blake, #79 – Brooke, #50

C – Charles, #60 – Claire, #817

D – Dean, #341 – Drew, #1327

F – Finn, #136 – Faith, #63

G – George, #12 – Grace, #8

H – Hugh, #349 – Hope, #167

J – Jack, #3 – Joy, #645

K – Kai, #56 – Kate, #267

L – Luke, #41 – Lea, #629 (debatable, I know)

M – Max, #20 – May, #414

N – Niall, #298 – Niamh, #81

P – Paul, #263 – Paige, #70

Q – Quinn, #381 – Quinn, #804

R – Rhys, #70 – Rose, #76

S – Seth, #101 – Skye, #84

T – Tom, #197 – Tess, #530

V – Veer, #528

W – Will, #269 – Wren, #1096

X – Xin, #2892 – Xin, #937

Z – Zac, #123 – Zi, #1545
