Fantasy as a genre is attention-grabbing, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that fantasy names for boys are too. These mighty monikers are born to shine bright, and some of the most exciting names hide within this cool collection.

Fantasy names for boys come in many flavors, but the most commonly thought of are names similar to those we know and love, yet still their own unique brand. Alixavier, for instance, is an eye-grabber, existing as a mashup between two favorites: Alex and Xavier. He has a sound that holds your attention and sticks in your mind, making him usable pick outside of fiction, too. There’s also Erix, a name we totally want to see more often. He feels like a fantasy twist on Eric, much like Elex feels like a cool flip on Alex. From popular media, you might recognize Eddard and Theon from Game of Thrones, names that mirror the classics Edward and Theo.

Other fantasy boy names fall into a category of futuristic sounds. These names feel like they’ve traveled here in a time machine, and we think they’re awesome. Xanon, for example, has a super cool space-age feel, as does Xorn. Xanadu is another, and he’s commonly used in fantasy writings.

Some fantasy names for boys turn to the world around us for inspiration, with word names common among them. Galaxy is an obvious choice here, along with Excalibur. These names are bold and brave, using the power of a word to convey a feeling and project. Exodus also fits this style, and this mighty moniker is growing in popularity if you’re a fantasy name lover looking for the next big thing.

With fantasy boy names, you can go for something short like Lynx or you can go grand with Severus. But whatever direction you choose, you’re bound to wind up with an awesome name.
