It’s not uncommon for baby boy names to go BANG! It’s becoming ever so popular for macho men that want their boys to have manly names to name them after their hobbies or pistols, rifles and other firearms. The quest for unique names has even sent mom and dad into the areas of explosive devices to ferret out selections that will top their friend’s choices.
The most popular names for boys in past years have been shall we say, less than exciting. I’m not saying that these naming traditions are a bad thing. When the experts announced that unusual, difficult to spell names were going to get their babies resumes and job applications of the future kicked to the bottom of the heap you can bet parents paid close attention.

The most popular baby boy names in past years have been shall we say, less than exciting. I’m not saying that these naming traditions are a bad thing. When the experts announced that unusual, difficult to spell names were going to get their babies resumes and job applications of the future kicked to the bottom of the heap you can bet parents paid close attention. Only the insane would want to set their infant up for failure right off the bat!
You don’t have to be a rebel without a cause not to want to use baby boy names from the most popular baby names lists. How many baby boys named Aiden, Ethan and Jacob do we need on the planet at one time? No matter now beautiful the names may be, when you are naming millions of babies from the top 10 list, those names are going to become rather common and it will be a very unpleasant task to try to sort them all out. Before you settle for a run of the mill name, take a look at our baby boy names list above. Consider one of the names and choose something original for your baby boy’s first name and something pleasant for a middle name that will sound good with your boy’s last name without venturing into the realm of the weird and unpronounceable.
We took an impromptu survey of the list of baby boy names on this page. Some of the parents had an objection to the correlation of several of the names to guns and live ammo, but for the most part the comments and opinions were very positive. A few of the responses indicated that the names indicated power and success. We would like to think that the baby boy names we choose are an indication that our sons will be successful, but there are no guarantees. We do think that these are some of our favorite boy names and the fact that they have lots of power behind them didn’t really figure in that much.
