Wizard names for boys aren’t very common, but some parents can’t get enough of these spellbinding sorcerers. From big screen legends to ancient legends, we’ve searched far and wide and put them in one list for you to explore, whether you’re naming a baby or a character. But first, let’s explore some magical monikers together.

Among wizard names for boys, you’ll find one story that reigns supreme thanks to a certain boy wizard. Harry Potter brought wizards from books to the big screen, and the magical franchise contains some amazing wizard names for boys. Aside from Harry, Ron is arguably the most “normal” name among them, but that doesn’t mean the other options aren’t amazing. We absolutely love the name Neville, for instance, and we think he’s just as magical. Albus and Severus are other contenders, and this duo has some serious strength behind them. We really like Rubeus, too, the first name of a giant-wizard hybrid you may know as Hagrid.

Some monikers might not be wizards yet in stories, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t have the same sound as other wizard names for boys. Balthazar, for instance, feels right at home on a magical being. He’s big, bold, and brave—just like a wizard! We love Everard, too, and his nickname Ever is absolutely precious on a baby boy. Galeron is another contender along with Ailwyn. There’s always Lucius, too.

Other wizard names for boys are more subtle, using their meanings to hide their magic. Unless you go for Magic himself, of course. Alfie is a German great meaning “magic counsel,” for example. He is the quintessential boy name in our eyes, and we would love to see him more often. Gwydion is another pick, as this Welsh wizard translates to “God of magic.”

See what magic you can find among wizard names for boys.
