Rocky, Stony Baby Names: Jasper, Piers and Cole
When it comes to earthy boy names, some of the coolest ones are related to rock and stone. There are some names that mean rock such as the Scottish surname Carrick from the Gaelic Carraig.
Then there are names that mean earth or another element of the dirt, stone, or ground. If it’s a down-to-earth name you want, the list below features names with rocky and earthy meanings:
“stone of help”
“piles of stones”
“place of stones”
If those don’t rock your boat, perhaps you’d prefer names that come from actual stones, minerals or rocky landscapes:
Did I miss any good ones? What is your favorite rocky name for a boy?

What about Miner? That’s one I’ve seen here before and I love it! The small town I hail from was originally a mining town, so I have a soft spot for it.

I really like a lot of these. Sterling is currently my husband’s favorite boy name, and I love it, too, but I’m afraid it’s too tied to Sterling Archer. Not exactly a good namesake for a baby.
