Picking the Right Baby Names for Boys

Updated on November 12, 2010

What To Consider before Picking Baby Boy Names

Obviously the name has to be perfect. It has to reflect both personality and individuality but that is not necessarily all. You may also want to choose a baby name that meshes well with the last name, is uncommon, honors a loved one or has a strong meaning.

  • Are you naming him after somebody else?
  • Does meaning matter?
  • What personality does the name make you envision?
  • Do you want a common name?


A Mother's Intuition

You have this precious little baby growing inside of you and that creates a nearly unbreakable bond between mother and child. You feel every turn, stretch and kick - you can picture your babies mood and a sense of personality just by the level of activity you feel.

Don't be afraid to use this intuition to assist you in picking out names for your baby boy.

How to Make Common Baby Names for Boys - Not so Common

  • Change the spelling. i.e.a's instead of e's - Aidan/Aiden, K's instead of C's- Kolton/Colton or get creative: Michael/Mikael

You may be surprised to see how much of a difference something so simple can make.

      I love your name and I love the name Arian Rey. Around here (WA state) you don't hear those names which makes them "unique" and exactly the type of names I"m drawn too.

      Yay, my name is not included. -_-! I liked the name Arian Rey. Arian for the supreme race (Aryan) and Rey for king. BTW, my true name is Ireno (male version of Irene, meaning peace or peacemaker). Maybe, I'm living up to that name, although always mistaken as Ireneo since elementary grades. :D
