Cool Eurostyle Names for Boys
Nameberry has visitors from all over the world, which goes some way toward accounting for the fact that many of the names on our popularity list are more common in other countries than they are in the US. Of course, some American parents also search for international names to reflect their own ethnic heritage or to celebrate a culture or country they love or to find a more dashing way to honor Grandpa Frank.
Most of the names here, drawn from the names right below the most popular Top 1000, are European in origin and so evidence that sophisticated French or Italian or Scandinavian style. Or at least they do to the American ear, which relishes an accent.
There are also European-inflected names for boys higher up in the Nameberry popularity list: Callum and Enzo and Stellan, for instance. And in Europe itself, baby names originating in one country may be stylish in another, so that the Dutch like Italian names, the Italians favor Russian names, the Russians prefer French names, and the French are in love with British names. The boys’ names here are more distinctive than their popular brothers, but just as nimble at crossing international borders.
If you’re looking for an international name for your baby boy, these are the perfect blend of familiar yet exotic.

Emil strikes me as a good addition to the list.

I’m not sure this is a good list for “international” or “European” names. It seems to me like most of the names are tightly tied to one language or culture, rather than working across the world. Having an “international” name was one of the requirements for my son’s name (English/German/French), and I don’t think I would have considered anything on this list. We chose the name Marius.
