Everyone wants to find the best boy names when it comes time to search for a baby name. While everyone has different tastes, we’ve scoured to compile our list of the best baby boy names, which contains a bit of something from every style.

As you might know, we’re wild about meanings, and the best boy names to us are ones with meaning and heart. Our son, Griffin’s name means “strong in faith,” which resonates with us. Similarly, we love the meaning of many other names like Declan, meaning “full of goodness.” We adore that many common names have incredible meanings like Matthew’s “gift of God” and Joaquin’s “lifted by God.” We especially love the meaning of little Levi, a Hebrew pick that’s perfect for a first son, meaning “joined together.” We think it’s absolutely precious as two people become one parental unit.

There are many classics among our list of the best boy names, as there’s nothing better than a timeless find. These picks like James, John, and Michael have remained strong over the years with good reason – they’re great names! Many biblical names appear as well, with Benjamin, Thomas, and Asher some of our favorites. Modern names are also plentiful on our list of the best baby boy names like Maverick and Mason. There’s something so adventurous about them that we can’t get enough of.

Like meanings, we’re also wild about positive associations. Some of our favorites on our best boy names list have a natural twist, unsurprisingly, as seen in River and Fox. We especially love Fox’s feisty feel, which perfectly suits a little boy in our eyes. Arthur has a regal air we adore, and Cruz has strong religious ties that we can’t get enough of. You’ll find many names on our best boy names list with great associations.

The best boy names aren’t all one style or origin. They’re worldwide picks that range from soft to tough, and each is special in their own way. What are some names on your best boy names list?
