Ushering in light after the darkness of loss, rainbow names for boys speak to the heart. These mighty monikers pay homage to the past while inspiring hope for tomorrow. We’ve compiled a list of rainbow baby boy names that offer peace and promise of a better future.

Deep meanings and symbolism lie behind many rainbow baby boy names. Jason is one of the most poignant, meaning “to heal.” Similarly, Asa means “the healer.” Both are more than fitting for a family recovering from loss. You could also seek out meanings you wish to instill upon your little one, like Valentino‘s “healthy and strong” or Felix‘s “happy and lucky.” The name could mean “rainbow” as well, like the African treasure Musoke and the Hebrew Kershet. Journey is another excellent choice, honoring the arduous trip you’ve been on as a family, as is Amias, meaning “loved.”

Rainbow baby names for boys may have religious ties, like Christian or Angel. You could turn to Matthew, meaning “gift of God,” or check out Muhammad, meaning “praiseworthy.” Gabriel is a moniker that crosses faiths, as he’s an important figure in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. Meaning “God is my strength,” Gabriel is depicted as a messenger from God or angel in each religion, something your rainbow baby most certainly is as well. Another incredible option is Amadeus, meaning “love of God.” Amen!

You could seek something color-related to honor your rainbow baby, too. These rainbow baby names for boys are bright and joyous, decorating your life forever with their hue. Blue is an amazing choice, as are his brothers, Indigo and Cyan. The shade is an inspiring color that can symbolize the blue skies ahead of your rainbow. There’s also Silver, a perfect moniker for your hard-fought silver lining.
