118 Boy Names Starting With W

Baby boy names that start with the letter W were the second most popular category until the 1910s, largely thanks to royal William’s 40-year reign as the #2 name. Also ranking highly a century ago was distinguished vintage gem Walter, which has been rising recently in the popularity charts since unlikely anti-hero Walter White exploded onto our screens.

And riding the W wave are a whole new breed of W-starting boy baby names with a decidedly tougher, edgier image: from Wyatt and Wilder to Wesson and Wolf. If you want an awesome W name for a baby boy, check out our full list here.
