Boy Names Starting with A
by Emma Waterhouse
Boy names that start with the letter A are second only to J names. About 10 percent of all baby boys in the US get a name that starts with the letter A.
Alexander is the most popular A name for boys, lying just outside the Top 10.
Along with Alexander, A names for boys that rank in the US Top 50 include Aiden, Anthony, Andrew, and Asher.
Some unique A-starting boys’ names we recommend include the classics Arthur and August, the so-old-they’re-new-again Amos and Atticus, and the upstarts Archer and Arlo. A name Archie received a big boost when it was chosen for one of Britain’s royal babies.
