Boys Names Beginning With G

A very long list of boys names beginning with the letter G. I hope it comes in handy.
  1. Gable
    • Origin:

      French
    • Meaning:

      "triangular feature in architecture"
    • Description:

      The iconic Gone With the Wind star Clark's surname was brought into the first-name mix when Weeds' Kevin Nealon picked it for his son. Gable makes a strong and unusual possibility, a rhyming cousin to Abel and Mabel.
  2. Gale
    • Origin:

      Nature name
    • Description:

      Gale for boys is more a storm name than a short form of Abigail. Since Gale has resurfaced as the name of Liam Hemsworth's daring character in The Hunger Games, it has new force for boys.
  3. Galvin
    • Origin:

      Irish
    • Meaning:

      "a sparrow"
    • Description:

      More common as a surname, Galvin is a possible alternative to Gavin and Calvin.
  4. Gardener
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "keeper of the garden"
    • Description:

      Gardener is surely one of the most pleasant and evocative of the occupational options, calling up images of green grass and budding blooms. The name can also be spelled without the first 'e', as in Gardner (born George Cadogan Gardner) McCay, a hunky TV heartthrob of the 1950s and 60s. Gardner is a much more common surname spelling, associated with screen legend Ava, mystery writer Erle Stanley and art collector and patron Isabella Stewart, founder of Boston's Gardner Museum.
  5. Gardner
    • Origin:

      English
    • Meaning:

      "keeper of the garden"
    • Description:

      Surely one of the most pleasant and evocative of the occupational options.
  6. Gaspar
    • Origin:

      Spanish variation of Casper
    • Description:

      The name of one of the Three Wise Men from the East is heard in several European countries, but rarely here.
  7. Gaspard
    • Origin:

      French variation of Jasper
    • Meaning:

      "bringer of treasure"
    • Description:

      Jasper is an internationally-popular name that takes many forms, among them Casper, Gaspar, and the French version Gaspard. Virtually unknown in the US, Gaspard is one of the Top 100 Boy Names in France.
  8. Gasper
    • Gatsby
      • Origin:

        German surname and literary name
      • Meaning:

        "from Gaddesby"
      • Description:

        Gatsby is one of the most famous literary surnames, borne by the titular character of F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. The book's Jay Gatsby gussied up his surname from Gatz, whose meaning is given variously as left-handed, cat, God, and person from Gat. As a first name, it's got a lot of energy and that great literary pedigree.
    • Gavin
      • Origin:

        Celtic
      • Meaning:

        "white hawk"
      • Description:

        Gavin, a name with Scottish roots, has stepped into the spotlight, replacing the dated Kevin, thanks in part to pop-rock sensation Gavin DeGraw and Bush lead singer Gavin Rossdale.
    • Gawain
      • Origin:

        Welsh
      • Meaning:

        "May hawk"
      • Description:

        This name of the courteous Knight of the Round Table, the nephew of King Arthur, has long been superseded by its Scottish form, Gavin.
    • Gašper
      • Origin:

        Slovene variation of Jasper, Persian
      • Meaning:

        "bringer of treasure"
      • Description:

        Former Top 10 choice in Slovenia, now outside of the Top 50. The unaccented version, Gasper, ranked in the US Top 1000 in 1911 and 1917. The accent over the S specifies an SH pronunciation.
    • George
      • Origin:

        Greek
      • Meaning:

        "farmer"
      • Description:

        Iconoclasts though we may be, we like Fred, we like Frank, and we like George, which was among the Top 10 from 1830 to 1950, when the number of little Georges started to decline. Solid, strong, royal and saintly, yet friendly and unpretentious, we think that George is in prime position for a comeback, especially since it was chosen by Britain's royal couple.
    • Giuseppe
      • Origin:

        Italian variation of Joseph
      • Description:

        This form of Joseph is an enduring classic in Italy. In the States it's been hovering under the radar for decades, unlike popular boy Giovanni. It could honor a grandpa Joe, and we think the traditional diminutive Beppe is pretty cute.
    • Glacier
      • Origin:

        Nature name, French
      • Meaning:

        "ice"
      • Description:

        Nature names are often associated with Spring and Summer, but Glacier is ideal for a winter baby.
    • Gold
      • Origin:

        English word name
      • Meaning:

        "gold"
      • Description:

        Luxe baby name that could easily fit in among children named Onyx and Emerald. Goldie is a rising choice for girls.
    • Goro
      • Origin:

        Japanese; variation of Gorou
      • Meaning:

        "fifth son"
      • Description:

        Variation of Gorou.
    • Gray
      • Origin:

        Color name, also diminutive of Grayson
      • Description:

        The girls have Violet and Scarlet and Ruby and Rose, but for the boys there's a much more limited palette of color names. Gray (or Grey), is one exception, which could make for a soft and evocative--if slightly somber-- choice, especially in the middle. Kaitlin Olson and Rob McElhenney recently named their son Leo Grey.
    • Grayson
      • Origin:

        English
      • Meaning:

        "the son of the bailiff"
      • Description:

        Grayson, which you might think of as a Jason-Mason substitute, has been rising through the US Top 1000 since 1984 and has ranked in the Top 100 since 2011.
    • Greene
