Turn up the spice with Spanish boy names. These handsome monikers are sizzling with style and bring the energy and excitement of Madrid with them. Spanish is one of the so-called romantic languages, and its names are no different. They’re melodic in sound and roll beautifully off the tongue, so it’s no wonder parents adore them. Take a stroll with us as we go in-depth with Spanish boy names.
You’re likely familiar with most classic Spanish baby boy names, like Jose, Juan, and Miguel. They’re perennially popular, and with good reason, as they’re variants of the common picks Joseph, John, and Michael. You could follow their lead to make an old family name new, like honoring Grandpa Alexander with a little Alejandro or naming your son Mateo after your husband, Matthew. Andres is an especially fun alternate pick, as he’s almost a carbon-copy in looks to his root name Andrew but vastly different in sound.
For a more dramatic feel, let’s dive into the passionate monikers hiding among Spanish boy names. Maximiliano is a unicorn among them, as he has a bold look and long, rhythmic sound. We love all of his nicknames, too, with Max and Maxim just the tip of the iceberg. If his six syllables are too much, see Francisco or Ricardo. They have just as much va-va-voom factor in a smaller package.
Those who enjoy shorter finds are in luck, too, with Rio and Elio leaping with energy despite their short stature. Diego is another noteworthy pick, as not only does he also have the in-demand vowel ending, but thanks to the popular cartoon, he’s overflowing with youthful charm.
You’ll find several of today’s top trends hiding amongst these magnificent monikers, our favorite being the unexpected letter. Rare picks like X and Z are popping up more and more toward the top of the charts, and Xavier is one of them. Meaning “new house,” he’s a handsome pick for a little one beginning anew in the book of life. Enrique and Cortez work well with the trend, too, and we’d love to see more of them.
Spanish boy names are rich with beautiful meanings, from Fernando’s “brave journey” to Ramiro’s “renowned counselor.” Given Spain’s deeply religious roots, you’ll also find many spiritual ones like Cruz’s “cross” and Santino’s “saints.” If you love names tied to God specifically, you’re in for a treat, with “Joaquin’s “lifted by the Lord,” Jair’s “God enlightens,” and Rafael’s “God heals.”
Our favorite place to explore is always toward the bottom of the charts, as less common names tend to have an it-factor just waiting to be found by the masses. Navarro is a stylish surname pick that we think works well beside the more popular Jackson and Carson, while Javi and Efrain are striking enough to give a second look. Estevan is another we cherish, as the meaning of “crown” is too handsome not to love.
Spanish boy names are as diverse as the country itself, catapulting you to a whole new world of naming options. From the regal Reyes to the cheeky Chico, explore them with us.
