Mythology Boy Names
Baby names inspired by myth and legend are on the rise, inspired by the use of mythological names for boys in the Hunger Games series. The pantheon of Greek and Roman deities, such as Orion and Apollo, and other figures from Irish, Norse, African, Hindu, and other myths and legends can provide an abundant source of audacious baby names, all combining deep history with not-heard-in-a-long-time freshness.
Along with Orion and Apollo, other mythological boy names in the US Top 1000 include Arthur, Damon, Dylan, Finn, Jason, Jasper, Oscar, and Tristan. American parents most likely to choose names from European myths, but Asian and African countries have many gods with intriguing names, such as Kirin, and Shango, and Vishnu.
