It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, wait… it’s an awesome baby name! That’s right; superhero names can totally work on your super baby boy. While Spiderman or Batman may be a little out there for most, you can find plenty of amazing superhero names for boys that wear well in the real world. Let’s check them out.

Boy superhero names remain in the spotlight as the genre dominates the box office. You may hear more of Thor, Captain, and Loki on the playground as a result. In here, we see plenty of ways to follow the trend. Clark is always a favorite, as Clark Kent is the name behind Superman. And let’s not forget about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and their amazing names: Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo. Seriously, superhero name gold right there with a hefty dose of classical charm.

Obviously, superhero names can be super flashy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find something that can fit even the most classic of name styles. Bruce, for example, is part of two famous superhero names: Bruce Banner (the Hulk) and Bruce Wayne (Batman.) There’s also Peter Parker, the moniker behind Spiderman. These are subtle superhero names for boys that honor the character yet still maintain a bit of their own identity.

If you want to kick it up a notch, most superhero boy names have an edgier side. Our top suggestion would be Falcon, a word name that’s also tied to a Marvel superhero. As animal names like Bear and Hawk grow in popularity, we see plenty of viability for Falcon. Onyx is close behind, with an exciting (and trendy!) -X ending that’s much-beloved with Jax, Maddox, and Max. For brave namers, there’s always Storm, the powerful pick that’s perfect for a little one with an explosive personality or resilience.

As you can see, superhero boy names are as diverse as they are powerful. Harness their strength, and see what name you fall in love with for your super baby boy.
