Brighten your name list with pretty boy names. From common classics to unknown treasures, these handsome picks offer style and fabulous meanings. We’ve rounded up a collection of pretty boy names we hope you’ll adore as much as we do.

Many monikers in this group are pretty popular boy names, and with good reason. More parents are likely to use a name when it looks and sounds great. This includes top-ten staples, like Liam, Noah, and Elijah. These names are gentle on the ear and wear well on most little ones, offering boyish charm and mischief. This is also true of top-ten newcomers like Oliver, Benjamin, and Henry. You can find pretty classic boy names high on the charts, too, including William, James, and Daniel. These are timeless picks with enduring spirit. Best of all, they never go out of style.

You might be more interested in less common names, as this helps you avoid your little one going by his first name and last initial frequently in school. Other picks on our list are pretty unique boy names like Yovanni. This form of John isn’t a familiar face stateside, but he’s undeniably handsome. See Aston for a dash of debonair vibes, as in the luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin. He has the trending -on suffix ending but isn’t as commonly used as Hudson, Jackson, or Mason. Close in sound is Dorian, a literary favorite. Relatively nickname-proof and classy, he’s an excellent alternative to the popular Julian and Damian. Other pretty unique boy names to explore are Kanoa, Orlando, and Uziel.

Our favorite pretty baby boy names are those with powerful meanings. Not only is a nice meaning ideal for your son to look back on someday, but it can also make a name that much more special to you. This is especially true if you pick a meaning close to your hobbies, such as something musical. You can opt for natural meanings, like Kai’s “sea” or Silas’ “man of the forest.” You can also find names that mean “handsome,” like Beau, Kenneth, and Yahir. Some parents prefer something more personable such as “friend,” like Khalil, Koda, and Bellamy.

Browse the rest of our pretty boy names and see which marvelous moniker earns a spot on your name list.
