Beautiful boy names are always in style. Whether they get their handsomeness from sound or meaning, you can’t go wrong with one of these treasures. We have a complete list for consideration, but we’ll run through a handful with you here.

Beautiful boy names are all over the charts, particularly toward the top, which is no surprise. Alexander is a perenially popular member of this group. This “defender of man” is a double threat, as he’s handsome in sound and meaning. Sebastian is another common cutie with beauty. We can’t forget about the sweet Noah, either, or his gentle friend Julian. Discover more popular beautiful choices with Brooks, Henry, and Mateo.

Other beautiful boy names are rare, distinguishing them from their peers. One of our top unique picks is Jorah, a Hebrew name meaning “first rain” or “autumn rain.” He’s similar enough to the popular Jordan and Jonah not to feel too out there, yet he’s far less common, not even ranking within the Top 1000 Boy Names. Similarly, there’s Jericho. While he cracked the Top 1000 to land in the 900s, he’s still uncommon. Meaning “city of the moon,” he’s as beautiful in meaning as he is in sound. Check out Theron and Calix for more unique options.

Beautiful names for boys usually have pleasing sounds, whether long and melodic or short and crisp. Santiago is a prime example. He’s a Spanish sweetheart who means “Saint James.” With his varying pitches and flow, he’s simply stunning. Damiano shares this, along with his friend Emiliano. On the flip side, shorter, sharper names offer the dapperness of Bond, including James, Ace, and Rex.

Often, beautiful boy names have incredible meanings behind them. One of our favorite beautiful boy name meanings belongs to Amias, a Latin name meaning “loved.” Another wholesome find is Dario‘s “possessing goodness.” Faithful meanings are also plentiful, including Rafael‘s “God heals” and Osman‘s “God’s protection.” Other monikers have a beautiful meaning by association, like Phoenix. Connected to the mythical bird who rises from the ashes, this beautiful name represents rebirth.

Many beautiful baby boy names have natural roots, giving the gift of stunning imagery at their mentioning. River is one enjoying a rise in popularity currently. Water names for boys like him offer tranquility and a “go-with-the-flow” type of energy. You can also head deep into the forest with other beautiful options, including tree names like Linden and Aspen. The plant pick Sage offers his own beautiful greenery, and a long history of healing uses across cultures. See Jasper, Arden, and Oaklen for more beautiful nature-themed monikers.
