Parents flock toward sweet names for boys, and it’s clear why. These finds have undeniable energy and heart, just like the little ones who wear them. Come explore sweet baby boy names with us.

First up in sweet boy names are classic finds. There’s Jack, a modern favorite with it-factor. Parents are head over heels for this energetic form of John, and with his short, snappy sound, he’s versatile when it comes to fitting last names. Another John variant is Johnny, who’s less common than Jack, but still an all-star pick for those who love sweet boy names with a classic American feel. Other classic sweet boy names to check out are Wes, Ollie, and Lee.

Many sweet names for boys are still under the radar and enjoy moderate to low rankings on the chart, which might spare your son from going by his first name and last initial in school. This includes ultra-rare monikers like Florian and Rayhan and those who are well-known, like Paul, Phillip, and Mac. One of our favorites in this group is Rhett, as he checks off a lot of boxes. Not only is he a stylish surname, but he’s also a literary and musical name. There’s also his rhyming friend Brett to consider.

Short and sweet boy names are another popular option, as they’re relatively nickname-proof. Kai is one of our favorites here, with this Polynesian prince having the gorgeous meaning “sea.” The Scottish sweetheart Ross is another serious contender, along with Ali, Gus, and Asa.

Lastly, there are some names for boys that mean sweet if you’re looking for hidden sweetness. Kaipo means “sweetheart,” while Jarrah’s “God gives sweetness” sends hearts soaring. There’s also Huckleberry, a literary classic who makes a fun, unexpected middle name.

Browse sweet names for boys with us and find a new sweetie pie (or more) for your name list.
