Capturing your love of the cosmos is easy with space names for boys. Rich in out-of-this-world style and intrigue, these names stand out. Let’s get to know some together.

When you think of baby boy names inspired by space, you probably think of planet names first, like Jupiter. Planetary names for boys aren’t that popular, but they’re undeniably cool. Neptune and Mars are the most “name-like” of the bunch, but Mercury is also a contender. Pluto is another pick, though the dwarf planet isn’t a “planet” in the eyes of the scientific community anymore. Regardless, his styling is off-the-charts awesome and super cute.

Constellations make up many outer space names for boys. Orion is a favorite, along with his buddy Leo. These are strongly linked to space but still familiar faces on the name charts, winning over many parents. Another standout is the edgy Draco, who doubles as a Harry Potter name. You might also like the sharp styling of Cygnus or the mythological ties of Perseus and Hercules. Plenty more constellations make epic space names for boys, including Ara, Apus, and Lynx.

Some of our favorite boy names related to space and stars are moon names, like Saturn’s Titan. Striking in sound and association, Titan isn’t very common, but he’s definitely a powerful pick. If you rocket over to Neptune, you’ll find his close friend Triton amongst its moons, while the planet Uranus is home to plenty of fantastic moon monikers, including Ferdinand, Francisco, and Oberon.

Real-life astronauts make cool space names for boys too. These brave space explorers dared to go somewhere others haven’t, making them excellent associations. They’re usually more subtle in their space connections if you’re looking for something lowkey. Aleksey is a handsome variant of Alexander famously worn by the first person to walk in space, Aleksey Leonov. Try out Buzz or Neil to pay homage to the first men on the moon, or use their surnames, Aldrin and Armstrong, respectively.

Space names for boys light up any room with wonder and awe. Check them out and see which finds orbit on your name list.
