Venture to the northern end of the United Kingdom with Scottish boy names. Ranging from rugged to gentle, these handsome monikers are sure to win you over. Discover standouts with us below.

Scottish boy names are common in the U.S., with the Top 100 Baby Names usually containing several at a time. Logan continues to be the most popular, and this red-hot pick shows no signs of slowing. He’s followed by Cameron and Carson, two names similar in sound and styling. Rounding out the most common Scottish boy names are Ian, Brody, and Kyle. As you can see, the strong -n ending is common in Scottish boy names, and this is also trending with boy names overall on the charts. They’re a match made in heaven!

If you’re a lover of trends but don’t want to leap right into the top Scottish boy names, there are still plenty of options to consider. Finley has shown an upward trajectory, and with his super-cute Finn nickname, we definitely see why. Kade is another chart climber, and we love his crisp styling. Lennox is also fashionable in his look with the beloved -x ending that parents can’t get enough of. We adore his vintage nicknames of Lenny and Nox, too. Callum is another pick on the move, and we would keep a close eye on this one. He has all the traits of a popular name, and we can totally see him gaining ground in the coming years.

Keeping with the modern theme, there are several all-stars lurking among Scottish boy names. Our top pick is Bowie, a playful name with rockstar ties. Like Jagger, he’s destined for greatness, and he makes a badass name for a kiddo. Similarly, we love Calder, as he works well with today’s top names and just sounds plain, old cool. Our last highlight is Campbell, a surname sweetheart that totally deserves more use. We love his styling and can see him playing beside Jackson and Harrison on the playground.

Classic name lovers have many Scottish boy name options too. Kenneth and Keith once ruled the charts, but have both fallen into sweet-spot territory, where they’re well-known yet not overused. There’s also Malcolm, a name with historical significance and a handsome sound. Neil is another timeless pick, and his meaning of “champion” sounds like the perfect choice for a future athlete. You could also check out Douglas, a rare gem of a name that we can totally see making a comeback.

Speaking of rare, there are so many unique Scottish boy names. You can mirror the most popular names with picks like Bryston and McKinley, or you can march to the beat of your own drum with Ross. We love the strength of Thayne and Bram, but at the same time, we adore the gentle sound of Leith. This diversity in look, sound, and style makes Scottish boy names some of the coolest out there.

Wherever your name journey takes you, we hope you find one you love among Scottish boy names.
