When you are preparing for the arrival of your little boy, it is important to choose a name that will best reflect their character. Whether you opt for a classic moniker or one that has a special meaning, there are many options to consider.
The Social Security Administration keeps track of baby names and their popularity. Here are some of the popular choices for boys:
Evan (pronounced ev-an) is a popular baby boy name that has been gaining in popularity over the years. It’s a Welsh translation of John and a variation on the Greek name Evangelos.
It’s often given to boys, but can also be used for girls. Famous people with the name include American actor Evan Peters and singer-songwriter Evan Rachel Wood. Fictional characters include Evan Baxter from the 2007 film Evan Almighty starring Steve Carell.
Felix is a strong-sounding name with an auspicious meaning. It has European origins and is used as a given name in several countries. It was also the name of a Roman governor who interrogated Paul the Apostle.
Although Felix is traditionally associated with the 1919 lucky cat and the persnickety character in The Odd Couple, it’s been embraced by recent pop culture icons as well. K-pop star Lee Felix is a good example.
Finley is a popular baby name of Scottish and Irish origin that means “fair hero.” It has also been used for girls, making it a true unisex name.
Those with the numerology number 8 have a lot of drive and determination, and they like to spread their wings and explore the world around them. This makes Finley a perfect fit!
Fletcher is a boy’s name with a little bit of quirkiness. This English-origin masculine name means ‘arrow-maker.’ Its notable bearer was the master mate of Captain William Bligh who led the Mutiny on the Bounty.
The famous TikTok singer Fletcher is also a popular choice. Fletcher’s horoscope/nakshatra is Dhanu/Sagittarius and his personality is impulsive. He is a jovial and fun-loving person.
Ford is a male name. Your baby boy will be stuck with this name for the rest of his life so choose wisely!
Those with this name are thought to be intelligent and graceful. They may have an interest in mysticism and spirituality. They can also be somewhat introverted. They enjoy art and are often creative. They are also known to be good at math and logic.
Whether you want to imbue your little one with strength or just add an offbeat name to your list, there are plenty of choices that incorporate hawk imagery. Gavin, a Scottish name that has recently taken over for dated Kevin, is one option with a strong association with hawks.
Raven is another animal-themed name that works for boys. You can also check out other bird names like Falcon and Swift.
Hendrick is a masculine name that means “rules his household.” It’s also a variation of Henry.
Hendriks are a great choice for parents who want their child to be different from the crowd. They are resourceful and independent people who take a methodical approach to solving problems.
These people are very practical and always prefer to use an ethical way to achieve their goals. They are tolerant and generous individuals who help others.
Howie is a 5-letter and 1-syllable baby name that’s pronounced ho-wie. It’s a diminutive form of Howard.
You care deeply for your family and friends. You’re also a natural peacemaker who can bridge the gap and work towards harmony in society.
Professions that suit you are musicians, singers, painters, jewelers and beauticians. You value honesty and justice. You also have high potential for success.
Harvey is a classic boy’s name with plenty of moxie. It was a top choice in 1880 and peaked around the new millennium, before declining with two big bad-news stories: Hurricane Harvey and convicted sexual offender Harvey Weinstein.
But Harvey is back on the rise thanks to the civil rights leader Harvey Milk and Suits star Gabriel Macht’s character, Harvey Specter. It means “battle worthy” and suits confident boys with a sense of humor.
Henning is an old German name that translates to “home ruler.” This distinguished choice has modern flair without sounding old-fashioned.
People with the name Henning are very creative by heart. They love to spend time writing different types of contents.
They are attracted to people born under numbers 2, 4 and 6. Henning is a great name for a businessman. They will do well in professions like agriculturist, banking and finance, construction and law.
