What's the longest baby name?

By January 31, 2013

Follow me on:

So, I've been combing through the current most popular baby name charts and grouping names of similar syllabic lengths together. How many syllables do you think the longest name has? And would you guess it is a girl's name or a boy's name?

Well, if you said six syllables and a boy's name, you'd be right. In the top 1000 baby names, there is but one six syllable name, and that name would be....

(drum roll, please)

Maximiliano

Two brownie points to whomever guessed it!

Now I grouped names of similar pronunciation together, but here is the skinny on the number of names based on syllable length.

Any surprises?
