Hipster boy names offer the perfect balance of cool and unique, serving up seriously stylish picks for parents. Hipster names float outside the top of the charts but follow many of today’s top trends. These ultra-hip picks contain something for every taste including vintage names like Ralph and Otis, as well as modern monikers like Ace and Brixton. Of course, you’ll find all sorts of uber chic charmers and rare gems as well!

Surnames are a huge hit among hipster boy names, serving up awesome alternatives to the more popular Mason and Carter with picks like Jones, Smith, and Wilson. While these are unique, they work well with the Top 100 and don’t seem too out of the ordinary. If you’d like something a little rarer, try out Penn or Tully. Hipster boy names also include many presidential picks, like Truman and Clinton for a pop of historical charm. For non-political choices, check out Edison, Franklin, and Darwin.

Word name fans are in for a treat, as some of the coolest out there are hipster baby boy names. There are nature picks like Onyx and Clay, as well as strongman finds like Arrow and Knight. You could turn up the action with Dodge or Jet, or venture into the great beyond with Cosmo and Ranger.

Hipster boy names wouldn’t be complete without musical picks. They vary from terms like Lyric and Alto to industry giants like Fender, a brand of guitar. There are also big names borrowed from the spotlight like Lennon, Hendrix, and Bowie. For those looking for something more unique, check out Ziggy and Zeppelin. Artistic names are another favorite, with Leonardo and Monet just two of the favorites.

Be bold or simply check out something a little different. With hipster boy names, you have the option for both.
