100 Cool Boys’ Names

Cool boys’ names come in styles to suit every taste. There are cool unusual boys’ names from the Bible, which include such rare edgy choices as Boaz and Hanan. Then there are undiscovered classic names for boys that have fallen off the radar but deserve a fresh look, such as Hugh and Roger.

And of course there are lots of modern names for boys — surname names, place names, and word names — that also qualify as cool and unusual.

The boys’ names here are drawn the best of all different styles.  They’re highly unusual, given to  only ten or fewer boys in the US.  These rare choices include names both classic and new-fangled, plain and fancy — as long as they are cool.

In fact, it’s hard to whittle the list down to only 100. If you want to see even more choices, also check out this somewhat different list of the best cool unusual names for boys.
