List Of Top 1000 Baby Boy Names

Both the parents need to brainstorm on the names they shortlist so it becomes easier to make a final decision.
Becky, a mother and radiologist, shares how she and her husband, Dereck, came up with the name Liam as the perfect name for her son. She says, “Dereck had always wanted William, it was both his middle name and his grandfather’s name. I wasn’t too sure of William at first because it was such a popular name, and had friends who had named their boys William already, but also understood it was a family name. I did love the name Liam though, so Dereck and I were able to come to an agreement that if we had a boy his official name was going to be William, but we would call him Liam (i).”

Unique Ways To Choose A Name For Your Baby Boy

Deciding your baby boy’s name can be a very positive experience. But with so many choices, it can be a bit tricky to narrow down the options to one or two. Here are a few tips to the perfect name for your little prince.

1. Put Together A List Of Names:

Sit down with your partner and make a list of names that you both like. Research on the shortlisted names and find out their popularity.

2. Say Out The Names Aloud:

Say out the selected names aloud to understand how they sound. A mix of one, two and three syllables work great together.

3. Pick A Family Name For Your Son:

You can express your love for your grandfather or anyone who’s close to you by giving your son their name.

4. Select A Name That Indicates Your Heritage:

If you have close ties with ethnicity, consider a name from your culture. Ensure that the spelling of that name is simple to pronounce.

5. Pick A Name That’s Meaningful To You:

There may be a name or a word that represents a turning point or a critical moment in your life. It can also refer to someone who inspired you in your career or supported you in your difficult time.

Common Mistakes While Choosing A Name And How To Avoid Them

1. Embarrassing Initials:

Samuel Andrew Davis and Alison Sarah Smith are lovely names until you notice the initials. So check the initials first to avoid the rude awakenings.

2. Clinging Tightly To The Name You Swore To Give Your First Son:

Women decide on the names of their kids even before they are pregnant. But if the name has become too familiar or clashes with your last name, just let it go!

3. Not Testing The Name In The Real Word:

Some names may look nice on the paper, but may not work that well in life. This is true for both traditional and uncommon names. So pick names that can be pronounced easily and with confidence.

4. Giving Your Baby Boy An Androgynous Name:

According to a study published in Education Finance and Policy, boys who are given borderline female names like Jamie, Shannon or Aaron tend to face behavioral problems than those with boy-alone name. So stick with unisex names only for girls.
