Boy Names Starting With D
by Emma Waterhouse
Baby boy names starting with the letter D don’t have to be “dad names”. Along with longtime favorites Daniel and David, D names for boys in the US Top 200 include Dylan, Declan, Dawson, Dean, and Diego.
Darragh and Donnacha are D names on Ireland’s Top 100 for boys.
Iceland’s top D name for boys is Dagur. And the most popular boy name in The Netherlands starts with the letter D: Daan.
D had a good run back in the 1950s and 60s, when D was the third most popular initial for boys thanks to D-starting names David, Donald, Daniel, Dennis and Douglas.
(D was a popular first initial for baby names for girls a half-century ago too, led by the super-popular Debbie with Donna, Diane, and Denise on her heels.)
Unique D names on our recommended list include Dashiell, Deveraux, Dune, and Drummer. Continue browsing our complete list of D-starting names for boys below, or jump to boy names starting with a different letter.
