If you’ve scrolled through social media in the past couple of weeks, you’ve likely stumbled across the new word game that’s taken the internet by storm: Wordle. Recently acquired by The New York Times, the game was created by Josh Wardle, a Brooklyn-based software engineer, for his girlfriend, who loves playing word games. Each day, he releases a five-letter word that players have to guess through a process of elimination. If you’ve played the game, you know it’s surprisingly addicting.

In the spirit of Wordle, we’ve created a list of some of our favorite five-letter baby names. They’re short, can be easy to pronounce and offer plenty of gender-neutral options. If you’re still searching for your perfect baby name, check out the five-letter baby names below.
