Pirate names for boys have endless adventure in their sails. Scrappy and rugged, these outlaw picks are waiting for a rowdy baby boy to sail the ocean with.

Pirate is the most obvious pick among boy pirate names. He’s a to-the-point moniker and doesn’t play games. While he is bold, he might not be the best option in some places since pirates still roam a few areas of the world. Captain is another pirate-themed pick, and he comes with leadership tones, too. Since pirates typically tote weapons, you could also use names like Ace and Hunter. Or you could use a name that describes what all pirates are after: Silver and Gold.

Pirate names for boys usually have a specific sound, allowing you to branch out from word names. Gunder, for instance, has a tough feel that wears well on a pirate ship. Other members of his crew might include Jagger, Cutler, and Sedge. They share his gritty sound, and we can imagine them manning the crow’s nest. Blackstone and Iver feel like pirate captains to us, while Rigg sounds like a pirate apprentice ready to learn the ropes.

Not all pirate names for boys are out there, though. Many originate as nicknames, like Jack. Popularized by Jack Sparrow in modern times, Jack was the name of many real-life pirates in the old days. Bart has a similar style, and we love his no-frills feel. Other awesome pirate picks with nickname origins are Ollie and Iggy.

If you’re still unsure, you could always look at meanings for inspiration. Hudd, for example, is an English pick meaning “brave rule.” Kendon is another who translates to “brave guard.” For something a touch more dramatic, check out Lothar, a German name meaning “famous warrior.”

As you can see, pirate names for boys are as diverse as the seas they roam. Enjoy our sea-roaming selection.
