Popular Names For Baby Boys

One of the biggest challenges when a new baby boy is born is picking a suitable name for the baby that both parents and the child can live with. Parents nowadays have a lot of options on what and how to choose names for their babies. Baby boy names, just like names for baby girls, continue to evolve, and while there are the all time favorite names, there are also new and trendy names that come up every now and then. You cannot expect ‘Chan’ to be a trendy name in Europe, but there are many popular baby names that you and your child will both love.

- There are popular Catholic names and most are derived from the Bible. Ethan, Matthew, Samuel, and Jacob are just some names that are still being used. While Abraham and Saul are also from the Bible, they are not as commonly used as other male names from the Bible.

- Popular baby boy’s names in the Latin Region are Julio, Alejandro, Fernando, and Jose. For Arab countries, Abdul and Ahmed are quite common.

- What used to be popular names are now still popular but in a different way. Andrew is now being shortened to Drew, Jonathan is often replaced with John, and David and Dave are both popular names with the same roots. The shortened version of the name is often being used as the first name for a truly modern and updated twist.

Here are also some ways on how to choose your baby boy’s name:
Unique names – You can either combine both names of the parents (try combing both first and first syllables, first and last, and other combinations until you get one that sounds right and not weird. You can add the I, II, or III in your baby boy’s name if you will be adopting the same names for the past 2 or 3 generations. The legacy of your forefathers name will definitely not be lost nor forsaken as it will still live in the years to come.

Database of names – Generally available online, a database of popular baby names for the current year and the past year are being monitored and recorded. The meaning of the names, especially if they are of Latin or have a significant origin, these name meanings are indicated as well.

Historical inspiration – You can name your baby after an important public figure in your home country. This is something that parents give their children particularly if the name is something the child will be proud of.

Ethnic names – To preserve tradition and culture, if you know of a local and ethnic name for a boy, you can use this name to show your respect and admiration to your ancestral roots.

Choosing a name for your baby boy should be exciting and not stressful or overwhelming. Also remember to incorporate both your ideas on how to choose and narrow down your name’s list. The next few months will be filled with anticipation, and what better way to greet your child into the world but by calling him in a name as cute, lovely, and special as he is.
