Alien names for boys have a space-age styling that turns heads. While obviously we haven’t interviewed any aliens in our research, we’ve roamed the galaxy for contenders, scooping up favorites along the way.

Our first stop in our search for alien names for boys is space itself. For an instant alien vibe, all you really need is a name that’s linked to OuterSpace. You could try out a planet pick, like Neptune or Mars. While they may sound a little odd at first to some, they’re technically place names, and we would love to meet a little Mars. Space terms are another option, like Galaxy, Moon, or Cosmo. Cosmo especially wears well here on earth. You could also look for names branching off of space items, like Nova, a shortened form of supernova, the event of a star explosion. The name has a burst of energy, fitting a little one who erupts onto the scene.

Next in our search for alien names for boys are those with space-themed meanings. First up is Taariq, a favorite of ours that means “morning star.” Not only is his meaning amazing, but his styling and sound are super cool. Astro is another contender with his meaning “of the stars.” He’s a name that leaps off the page at us, and he’ll catch everyone’s eye. Lastly, there’s Xing, a sweetheart meaning “star.”

Since no one has met an alien (that we know of!) you have creative freedom when searching for boy alien names. A name just has to sound unique and futuristic on earth to fit the bill. Bold names like Xanadu and Zailor have obvious space-age appeal, but so do strong-sounding picks, including Zadoc, Torion, and Cygnus. Let your creativity fly, and alien names for boys will come to life.

Hold on to your spaceships and browse our list of alien names for boys.
