315 Boy Names That Start With N (with Meanings and Popularity)

Boy names that start with N are at an all-time high right now, thanks to internationally popular baby boy name Noah.

Along with Noah, N names for boys in the US Top 100 include Nathan, Nolan and Nicholas. In Australia, N-starting names Noah and Nicholas are joined in the Top 100 by Nathaniel, Nate and Nixon. And in Norway, male N names Nikolai and Nils both rank near the top of the list.

Long fashionable as an ending sound for cool boy names, now the initial N has finally managed to shed its stodgy image (so long, Norman, Norbert and Neville!) and there's a new energy to the freshest kids on the male N name block: think Nico, Nash and Nova.

Here, our full selection of boy names that start with N, ordered by their current popularity on Nameberry.
