Who doesn’t love extraordinary boy names? With mighty meanings and incredible associations, these picks forever stand apart. Let’s get to know some and see what catapults a moniker from ordinary to extraordinary.

Extraordinary baby boy names often have associations with real-life figures that have impacted the world. These names remain firmly tied to the wearer, like Lincoln, Napoleon, and Aristotle. You can pick from Civil Rights legends like Martin and Malcolm and those from the Women’s Suffrage movement like Frederick, Blackwell, and Anthony. Literary lovers might want to pay homage to their favorite authors with names like Edgar and Oscar. Meanwhile, science buffs may adore Albert, Isaac, and Newton. The sky’s the limit here, and we see loads of extraordinary boy names falling into this category.

Extraordinary boy names can be classics, like Alexander, Andrew, and Daniel. These names are pretty common, but not only do they have wonderful real-life associations, but they also have incredible meanings, like the “soldier” behind Miles or the “famous warrior” behind Luis. At the same time, extraordinary boy names can also be rare, like Ferris, Gareth, and Jaziel. In fact, many extraordinary choices are unusual boy names. Jeriah is one of our standout picks amongst them. Meaning “taught by God,” this handsome pick is incredibly modern in sound despite his ancient history.

There aren’t any boy names that mean extraordinary exactly, but if you’re flexible, you’ll find meanings like “greatest” behind Maximiliano and other Max– names. There’s also Augustus’ “great/magnificent” meaning to try out. Other similar meanings are Darren’s “great,” Kabir’s “greatness,” and Kendrick’s “bold power.” Check out the meaning column to find more awesome ones.

While baby boy names meaning extraordinary aren’t plentiful, there are still a ton of awesome meanings to explore. The “brave” meaning of Koa packs plenty of power, while Evander’s “good man” is perfectly positive. Both Atlas and Dante mean “enduring,” while Baron means “young warrior.” Check out the meanings column of our extraordinary boy names list to see more epic meanings.

Extraordinary boy names wow and inspire. We hope you find the right one for your extraordinary little one.
