Baby boys names

Favourite first and middle names
  1. Isaac
    • Aden
      • Origin:

        Variation of Aidan, Irish
      • Meaning:

        "little and fiery"
      • Description:

        Although this variation is less popular than ultra-trendy Aiden, this simplified spelling doesn't do anything for the name.
    • Angus
      • Origin:

        Anglicized form of Aonghus, Aonghas, Gaelic
      • Meaning:

        "one strength"
      • Description:

        Angus is a traditional yet stylish choice in the UK, especially in Scotland. And it's a cool choice for US parents too, particularly those whose roots go back to Glasgow. The ancient Celtic form Oenghus has important historical overtones in Scotland, and the Gaelic form Aonghas is associated with two distinguished modern poets. In Irish folklore, Angus Og is a chieftain-lord who used his magical powers for the pleasure and prosperity of mankind--and in Irish myth, Aonghus was the god of love and youth.
    • Dominic
      • Origin:

        Latin
      • Meaning:

        "belonging to the lord"
      • Description:

        Dominic comes from the Latin name Dominicus and is common in the Roman-Catholic community. In the past it has been given to boys born on Sunday—the word "Sunday" in languages including Spanish and French shares Dominic’s roots. In use in the English-speaking world since medieval times, its most famous bearer was St. Dominic, founder of the Dominican order of monks in the thirteenth century.
    • Lennon
      • Origin:

        Irish
      • Meaning:

        "lover"
      • Description:

        A growing number of high-profile (and other) parents are choosing to honor their musical idols, such as Hendrix, Presley, Jagger, and now Lennon. Lennon first came to notice when Liam Gallagher and Patsy Kensit used it for their son in 1999, and singer-musician Adam Pascal followed their lead in two years later. Thanks in part to female singer and actress Lennon Stella, it's now more popular for girls than for boys.
    • Marley
      • Origin:

        English
      • Meaning:

        "pleasant seaside meadow"
      • Description:

        Harley is a tough guy, while the rhyming Marley has a softer, gentler image. The name brings to mind reggae great Bob Marley, as well as the lovable dog from bestseller Marley and Me.
    • Reuben
      • Origin:

        Hebrew
      • Meaning:

        "behold, a son"
      • Description:

        Reuben is derived from the Hebrew words ra’a, meaning "to see, to understand," and ben, "son." As a phrase it translates to "behold, a son." In the Bible, Reuben is Jacob's first-born son by Leah and the founder of one of the tribes of Israel.
    • Rohan
      • Origin:

        Spelling variation of Rowan or Hindi
      • Meaning:

        "sandalwood"
      • Description:

        From India, but feels like an Irish surname (and can in fact be a variation of Rowan), so a possible cross-cultural choice.
    • Rowan
      • Origin:

        Scottish and Irish
      • Meaning:

        "rowan tree; little redhead"
      • Description:

        With its gentle sounds and earthy vibes, the name Rowan feels like a fusion of different styles. A word name, a surname, and a gender-neutral name, Rowan is rustic but trendy, blending the vibes of both Owen and Oakley.
    • Seth
      • Origin:

        Hebrew
      • Meaning:

        "appointed, placed"
      • Description:

        The long-neglected name of Adam and Eve's third son after Cain and Abel, Seth is appreciated for its gentle, understated presence -- and strong middle-name potential. It reached a high of Number 63 in the year 2000.
