      "firebrand, sword"
    • Description:

      Rugged and straightforward brand-new name, though you might not like the idea of branding your son.
  5. Bravery
    • Origin:

      Virtue name
    • Description:

      This one's cutting right to the chase, but with such names as Justice and Peace on the rise, why not? And we guarantee your seven-year-old son will love it, though your 17-year-old, maybe not so much. Could be used as a middle name, as Talisa Soto and Benjamin Bratt did.
  6. Cadell
    • Origin:

      Welsh
    • Meaning:

      "battle"
    • Description:

      Cadell is a surname that is unlikely to win many supporters, except perhaps from parents looking for an alternative to Caden. But while Cadell is more distinctive, that L ending is weaker and less appealing than Caden's strong N.
  7. Cadogan
    • Origin:

      Welsh
    • Meaning:

      "honor in battle"
    • Description:

      This surname borne by several early Welsh leaders has a lot of energy.

    • Origin:

      Hebrew
    • Meaning:

      "spear; possessed"
    • Description:

      Biblical name Cain was, until recently, seldom heard outside of the Old Testament and soap operas. Although Cain's murderous actions will always make this name difficult for some, Cain, Eve and Adam's firstborn, was a farmer - making this a good choice for those with farming connections. Long outshone by Abel, Cain is starting to find a broader audience, helped along by homophones Kane or Caine.
  9. Cannon

      Word name
    • Description:

  17. Delaney

      Irish
    • Meaning:

      Cheerful but laidback, surname-style Delaney is derived from the Old Irish name Dubhshláine and has become a familiar choice for girls in recent decades. Nevertheless, it has also been used for boys since the early 1900s and was equally - though rarely - given to both, right up until the 1990s.

  19. Duncan
    • Origin:

      Scottish
    • Meaning:

      "dark warrior"
    • Description:

  20. Dustin
    • Origin:

      Norse
    • Meaning:

      "brave warrior, or Thor's stone"
    • Description:

      Dustin's popularity in recent years has probably had more due to its similarity to Justin than to idolization of Dustin Hoffman -- himself named after silent screen cowboy star Dustin Farnum -- who certainly was the one to put it on the name map. In recent years, golfer Dustin Johnson has brought fresh renown to the name. Dustin is a character in Netflix hit Stranger Things. After decades in the spotlight, Dustin feels like a classic rather than an upstart. It peaked in the Top 50s in the 1980s.
