Strong boy names meaning power.jpg?ixlib=rails 3.0

Powerful boy names might be those that literally mean power or strength, such as Andrew and Ethan, or those that simply sound macho: Rock is an exaggerated example.

Along with Ethan and Andrew, other powerful boy names in the US Top 1000 include Brian, Everett, Garrett, Griffin, Harvey, Kenzo, Merrick, and Zane. Other strong and powerful names for boys that may appeal include Evander, Fort, Oswald, and Quinlan.
