Five letter names for boys are favorites with parents. Whether you’re opting for 5 letter names to fit a family naming pattern or love the number itself, we’ve got a collection for you to explore. Let’s check out some highlights together.

The number five is considered energetic and adventurous–two traits that almost every little boy has. Fans of numerology may want to harness this spirit in their son’s name. This might be why so many 5 letter boy names are popular. James is an ongoing favorite, along with Lucas and Henry. These 5 letter names double as classics and are likely to remain high on the charts. Other popular picks have seen a more meteoric rise, including Mason, Aiden, and Jaxon. While these are familiar faces in playgroups today, they’re more likely to dip in use due to their sudden popularity, delighting those who’d like them to cool off a touch for use. Other popular 5 letter names for boys are Ethan, Jacob, and Logan.

Many five-letter names for boys fall into what we call “sweet spot” territory. These names are well-known but not overly common, making them attractive picks for parents seeking something established yet not appearing in every classroom. This includes Derek, an English name meaning “ruler of the people.” Felix is another great pick, and with a meaning like “happy and lucky,” he’s simply precious. Other sweet-spot 5 letter boy names include Hayes, Rowan, and Grant.

Other five letter boy names are ultra-rare and ready for discovery. Valen is one we’re shocked isn’t more common. This Latin pick means “strong and healthy,” which is everything you hope for in a son. Uziel is a rare Hebrew moniker that also means “strong.” If you love Riley but want something less common, check out Ronan, an Irish cutie meaning “little seal.” There’s also Xenon, a rare Greek alternative to the trending Xavier.

We hope you find your dream pick among our list of 5 letter boy names.
