Boy names that mean love are always in style. Offering your son a background of extra love from birth, these sweet monikers have heaps of heart. Let’s get going with some of our love-filled standouts.

The most obvious boy names meaning love contain the word itself, like Love and Lovelace. These aren’t very popular as first names, but appear more commonly in the middle name slot. If you’re wary of using the word on its own, check out Lovett. This handsome name contains love, but he also has a polished -ett ending, as seen in Everett and Emmett.

If working well with other names is a concern of yours, have no fear. Boy names that mean love can follow today’s top trends. There’s Rami, an Arabic pick that mirrors the style seen in the rising star Remi. Davin is another contender, with this Welsh wonder boy a rhyming friend of Gavin. Drury is a surname pick from France, while Kendi is an African sweetheart that’s close to Kendrick and Kendal. Browse our list, and the options might surprise you.

Boy names that mean love come from around the world, like Ohad, a Hebrew sweetie translating to “loved one.” Amancio is a Portuguese pick, meaning “loving.” In Wales, you’ll find Caragod, while in Poland, you’ll find Lubomir, meaning “great love.” The Arabic Habib has love behind him, as does Thandiwe, an African treasure. Speaking of Africa, this continent has amazing love-themed meanings that take it a step further than the word alone. Lolonyo means “love is beautiful,” and Lolovivi means “there’s always love.”

Love-rich meanings can also take on religious tones. This shines bright with Amato, a handsome name meaning “God’s love.” Jedediah is another, meaning “beloved by the Lord.” There are many others to enjoy, too.

Whichever route you choose, boy names that mean love have hidden heart.
