Tap into a well of natural charm with feminine boy names. These monikers aren’t running around wielding an ax and beating on their chests, but they’re certainly strong and handsome in their own right. In fact, most started out as solidly male names and were later given to little girls, earning them the “feminine” label.  Meet some of our highlights.

Feminine boy names may sound like they’re rare, but many of today’s top boy names actually fall into the category. Noah, for instance, also appears as Noa, which is used on a female in the Hebrew Bible. Meaning “to rest,” Noah has a soft sound and gentle spirit. He’s one of today’s most popular names, too. Riley is another great example of a common feminine boy name. He means “rye clearing” and is more popular for girls, but he still holds his own on the boy name charts. You might recognize Julian as well. A Latin name, he has the adorable nickname, Jules. See Cameron, Avery, and Oakley for more popular feminine names for boys.

You can also find unique options if you’d prefer something uncommon. To tap into today’s trends, see Atley. An Englishman with modern styling, he means “the meadow.” Similar in style is the surname sweetheart Ripley. Also hailing from England, he means “shouting man’s meadow.” Quite the name for a baby who’s not afraid to voice his feelings, huh? If you’re interested in unique picks with great meanings, check out Shia, a Hebrew name meaning “praise God.” Other unique feminine boy names include Adlai, Xola, Raja.

Speaking of meanings, this category has some of the best out there. First up is Rami, a handsome Arabic name meaning “loving.” Talk about a sweet meaning! Carmen‘s “song” also speaks to us. You can pay homage to your son’s amazing entrance into the world with Shai‘s “gift” or Rene‘s “rebirth.” You can find plenty of strength in these meanings too, with Ira meaning “the watchful one” and Emery meaning “the industrious king.”

Browse our complete list of feminine boy names to see more amazing options.
