The numbers are in, and the most popular boy names for 2019 are clear. While Liam and Noah come out on top as expected, a few names are moving up the charts that might surprise you. There are grand names like Sebastian, Santiago, and Christopher, as well as short finds like Jace, Jack, and Finn. Browse today’s most popular boy names with us!

As always, classic boy names like William and John remain timeless favorites, while modern monikers like Kayden and Braxton also appear. If you study the list, you’ll find lots of rare letters creeping up in rankings with exciting picks like XanderAxel, and Max hopping on the exciting X trend. Inner Ys are also in style, with Ryder, Ryker, and Jayden just some names that stand out.

Biblical choices make up a good portion of today’s popular boy names. Matthew, Michael, and Jacob continue to woo parents, and unexpected picks like Ezekiel, Abel, and Abraham inch upwards among them. The -iah suffix is incredibly popular among biblical boy names, with Isaiah and Josiah wowing. Keep an eye on this name category, as they’ll continue to be favorites.

Occupational names remain a trend that’s not going anywhere as seen in Top 10 darling Mason and rising stars Hunter and Carter. These are also part of the word name craze where King and Maverick reside. There are a few names that tiptoe the style as well like Weston and Easton. We don’t see these names going out of style anytime soon, so check out these all-star picks for a fashionable find with longevity.

Some parents may be wary of using top boy names because of popularity which we totally understand, while others want to use something common to avoid spelling and pronunciation issues. It’s a personal preference, and the popular boy names list is a great resource for seeing how widespread a name’s use is. At the same time, remember that many names are more popular in some places than others. For instance, Sebastian is the 17th most popular boy name nationally, but in California, he’s the 3rd most popular boy name. You can check the Top 100 boy names in each state here.

If you’re a parent who wants an established name but not a mega popular one, there are still plenty of options among top boy names. The secret is finding what we call sweet-spot names like Dominic, Jonathan, and Adrian. While these names are common, they aren’t as widespread as those towards the top of the charts. They also haven’t experienced sudden spikes in popularity, avoiding the trendy label other names might earn.

The most popular boy names of 2019 come from around the world and don’t fit one style. Whether you love trendsetters or seek a classic name, the most popular boy names of 2019 have something for everyone!
