Traditionally, little boys and race cars go hand-in-hand, making car names for boys a natural pick. What better describes the energy and excitement of a little one than a revving engine? Parents are seeking out these motorized monikers more often as word and surname names continue to grow in popularity.

Some car names for boys have a high-class feel like Bentley or Ferrari. Both of these names are flashy and instantly recognizable, though they may be a little too over-the-top for some. If that’s the case, check out Aston, as in Aston Martin, or Royce, as in Rolls-Royce. Aston is similar enough to Austin that he blends right in, while Royce has an exciting sound with an eye-catching style that works well with today’s top picks.

Conventional car names for boys are great choices as well. There are American manufacturer finds like Ford and Chevy, or if you’re feeling a little bold, you can go the word name route with Dodge. We understand that brands aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, however, so you could also look at model names like Cooper or Forrester. We’re loving on Cruz, and according to the charts, parents are too!

Word name lovers are in luck, as car names for boys have many options. There are component picks like Diesel, Axel, and Gauge, as well as car-associated names like Speed and Race. Of course, these names aren’t exactly mainstream, but we think this makes them extra awesome. We especially love Ranger and Arrow, two picks that work wonderfully as occupational and word names continue to boom on the charts.

Car names for boys come in traditional forms, too, like Holden, Carlo, and Colt. They pack the same high-octane feel without the obvious motor ties, winning over the more conservative crowd. Whatever your style, there’s a car pick for you.
