10 Letter Boy Names

  1. MaximilianHeart
    • Origin:

      Latin
    • Meaning:

      "greatest"
    • Description:

      This name once seemed a bit grand and pompous for an American baby boy, but a significant number of parents are now preferring it as a substantial platform for the nickname Max, among them Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, who chose it for their twin son.
  2. MontgomeryHeart
    • Origin:

      Norman
    • Meaning:

      "man power"
    • Description:

      This image of this distinguished Anglo-Scottish surname, drawn from the French place name of the ancient castle of Saint Foi de Montgomery, is rapidly shifting from fusty and formal to cool. And dashing short form Monty (or Monte) nudges it to cute.
  3. TheloniousHeart
    • Origin:

      Latinized variation of German Tillman, “one who plows the earth”
    • Description:

      One of the coolest of names, thanks to legendary jazz pianist Thelonious Sphere Monk, who inherited this Latin-sounding German name from his father. It has been used very sparingly since the 1960's, with just a sprinkling of baby boys receiving the name each year, though it's one of the unique baby names we predict will get much less unique as more parents embrace its quirky charms.
  4. TheophilusHeart
    • Origin:

      Greek
    • Meaning:

      "friend of God"
    • Description:

      This is a multi-syllabic New Testament relic that could be yet another fresh way to get to Theo. In the beginning of Luke's gospel, he dedicates his words to Theophilus.
  5. BeauregardHeart
    • Origin:

      French
    • Meaning:

      "beautiful gaze"
    • Description:

      In the past this was seen as a jokey Southern colonel name, but we have heard of some parents considering it as a path to the likeable Beau.
  6. AlessandroHeart
    • Origin:

      Italian variation of Alexander
    • Meaning:

      "defending men"
    • Description:

      For anyone seeking a more unusual version of Alexander, this is a real winner.
  7. ArchimedesHeart
    • Origin:

      Greek
    • Meaning:

      "master planner"
    • Description:

      Archimedes of Syracuse was a famous Ancient Greek thinker, especially in the fields of mathematics and sciences. He made important contributions to geometry and calculus. His name was a perfect choice, meaning "master planner" or "master thinker". This off-the-beaten-track choice of name was given to 10 little boys in the US in 2014. We recommend it to more parents, especially those with a penchant for all things ancient or mathematical.
  8. WilloughbyHeart
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "farm near the willows"
    • Description:

      Willoughby is an energetic last-name-first route to the popular short form Will, livelier than any of the two-syllable options. It could be picked up by parents attracted to the Willow sound for girls.
  9. FitzgeraldHeart
    • Origin:

      Irish and Scottish
    • Meaning:

      "son of Gerald"
    • Description:

      Made famous by F. Scott Fitzgerald and John Fitzgerald Kennedy; still works best as a middle name.
  10. HeathcliffHeart
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "cliff near a heath"
    • Description:

      Heathcliff is the name of the original passionate macho hero of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights, and also of the cartoon cat. It was chosen by fashionista Lucy Sykes for her son, and inspired the late Heath Ledger's name. But otherwise it's barely used, and perhaps a bit much of a namesake. For a modern boy we'd recommend Heath....or Cliff.
  11. OllivanderHeart
    • Origin:

      Literary Name
    • Description:

      A rare twist on modern favorites like Oliver and Alexander, this elaborate option is nevertheless familiar to most people as the surname of the eminent wandmaker Garrick Ollivander, from the Harry Potterbooks.
  12. D'artagnanHeart
    • Origin:

      French
    • Meaning:

      "from Artagnan"
    • Description:

      The least usable of the Three Musketeers names.
  13. OzymandiasHeart
    • Origin:

      Greek variant of Ramesses
    • Description:

      Percy Bysshe Shelley got the name for one of his most famous poems -- a sonnet about the insignificance of man's labors in the vastness of time -- from the Greek name for Ancient Egyptian pharaoh Ramesses II. Ozymandias has seldom been used as a first name for baby boys, and it's not hard to see why. Five ponderous syllables are a lot to bear.
  14. QuantaviusHeart
    • Origin:

      English, modern combination of Quan and Octavius
    • Description:

      One of the more imposing and intriguing of the combo names.
  15. WellingtonHeart
    • Origin:

      English surname from place name
    • Meaning:

      "people living in the hamlet in the cleared area near the temple"
    • Description:

      Wellington is a tony-sounding English surname turned baby name by pregnancy guru Rosie Pope, who calls her son Wells for short. It's also the middle name of one of the Sweet Home sextuplets, Blu Wellington.
  16. AthanasiosHeart
    • Origin:

      Greek
    • Meaning:

      "immortal"
    • Description:

      A mouthful of a given name, but one that is common in its native Greece. Athanasius is the spelling Americans are more familiar with — St. Athanasius of Alexandria is considered one of the founders of Eastern Orthodox Christianity.
  17. ConstantinHeart
    • Origin:

      Latin
    • Meaning:

      "steadfast"
    • Description:

      More likely to be spelled Constantine, this was the name of the first Christian emperor of the Roman empire, as well as three Scottish kings. Previously thought of as too bulky and unwieldy a name for a modern child, these days it would be perfectly acceptable.
  18. HieronymusHeart
    • Origin:

      German variation of Jerome
    • Meaning:

      "sacred name"
    • Description:

      This cognate of Jerome (of all things), familiar via the Dutch painter of fantastical scenes, H. Bosch, would appeal only to the most audacious, intrepid, attention-seeking baby namer. It is, however, still used in Germany, especially in Catholic Bavaria and in the north German Rhineland.
  19. AnastasiosHeart
    • Origin:

      Greek
    • Meaning:

      "resurrection"
    • Description:

      Greek name more familiar here in its feminine form, Anastasia, the masculine version bears further consideration. Traditional nicknames are Sakis and Staas.
  20. MeriwetherHeart
    • Origin:

      English surname
    • Meaning:

      "happy weather"
    • Description:
