2-syllable names are classic favorites. Today they are still very popular as baby girl names, but not as much as they were in the past.

The names have slipped in popularity since then, but they are nevertheless of very heavy use in recent times.

Among all 2-syllable names, Emma (English, Armenian, Catalan, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Scandinavian, and Spanish) was the most widely used, with a ranking of #2 and a usage of 1.082%.
