30 long baby names for boys and girls

by Samantha Ball |

If one or two syllables simply aren’t enough for your baby’s name, we have picked some of our favourite long baby names for you to consider.

Sometimes short names can be just that, too short, and you might want to give your a little one a little nickname while they're growing up - and let's face it, you can't shorten a name like Ava or Leo. So if a longer name is something you prefer, we've picked out favourite long names that you'll love too. And they should be pretty easy to shorten, too, so whether you like Eve, Monty, or Alex, there’s a name for you on the list!
