25 Awesome Boy Names Starting with A

boy names that start with A

A is the most popular first initial for all baby names, but somehow the girls’ names that start with A get more attention. Maybe that’s because there are six girls’ names in the US Top 25 — Ava, Abigail, Amelia, Avery, Aria, and Aubrey — but only two boys’ names, Alexander and Aiden.

But A is an amazing first letter for boys’ names, too, as the 25 choices here attest. These A names for boys include ancient names such as Atticus and Abel along with modern names such as Ansel and Arrow. There are classic baby names such as Arthur and Asher as well as trendy choices such as August and Arlo.

While a few of these names — Adrian and Axel — rank in the Top 100, most are much more unusual. Certainly more popular A names such as Andrew and Alex and Adam are attractive and eminently usable, but we are interested here in spotlighting those further down the list that you might not notice.

If you’re looking for an A-starting name for your baby boy, these are our 25 favorite.
