The sparkling heavens above inspire and intrigue, making star names for boys an attractive choice for parents seeking something as special as their son. As diverse as they are beautiful, star-inspired boy names are rich with meaning and history. Some come from Greek mythology, while others are simply long-lost words with a beautiful sound. Let’s enjoy these out-of-this-world star names for boys together.

Star names for boys aren’t that common, which makes unique name-seekers more than happy. Leo and Orion are likely the most recognizable to you, with both trending upward in recent years. Stellan, like his sister, Stella, is always on the move, and with his handsome sound, we totally see why. Meaning “star,” he’s not as obvious as a constellation name, but he fits in well with modern names. If you’d like a masculine star name that also matches this hard-to-fill role, check out Astin, meaning “starlike.” He’s like Austin, yet rare, and he’s associated with a luxury car brand, which is a win for many. Draco is another option, who has the in-demand vowel ending and is a constellation in the northern sky.

If you’d like something trendsetting, you’re in luck with star boy names, too. The sky is truly the limit with these names, offering many styles that mirror today’s. Our standout in the arena is Caelum, a constellation name meaning “chisel” that feels like a mashup of Callum and Caden, two names that parents are loving to pieces. Close behind is Crux, a Latin name meaning “cross” that we find just as handsome as the trendy Cruz. He also has the exciting X that parents are wild over. Lynx also has this riveting letter and the bonus of being a word name.

Like the shining beacons that inspired them, star names for boys will continue to burn bright in the hearts of many. Do you have any favorites? Check out our list and see if they appear.
