Special Considerations

Middle Names

In the United States, it's traditional for a person to have three names—a first name, a middle name, and your family or last name. Of course, there are plenty of parents who give their children more than one middle name, or none at all.

Whatever you choose for your son, it's always a good idea to make sure the names flow well together as a group, and that the initials don't spell out something that might embarrass you or your child in the future! It may sound like common sense, but making sure you run through these considerations with your favorite names will help you feel more confident in finding the perfect name for your little one.

Shared Names

Choosing a family name for your baby boy is still a common tradition, but there are multiple ways to go about it. In some families, the son (usually the first child) has the exact same name as the father, with the addition of a "Jr." (meaning junior) suffix at the end. If this extends beyond the original father and son, you typically use Roman numerals (II, III, IV, V, etc.) to depict this designation.

In other families, name sharing may be less traditional. Some parents will name their son the same first name as the father, but call the son by their more unique middle name to help differentiate between the two. Or some families use different names completely, but choose ones that have similar meanings or sounds to honor the original name.

When it comes to sharing names, be sure to consider the most famous and historical figures who will share your son's name. Are they individuals you want your son to be associated with? Whether you plan for it or not, the association with a famous person who shares the same name will likely follow your child throughout their lives so take special care to make sure you're happy with the choice.

Gender-Neutral Names

There are so many great gender-neutral names you might not have thought of yet in your search for the perfect boy name. Take a look—you might just find the one you've been waiting for!

About This List

The Social Security Administration usually releases the previous year's birth certificate data around Mother's Day each year (the release of 2019 data was delayed by COVID-19). It compiles the most popular baby names from the previous year and provides you with the most popular numbers.

The list above refers to the top 1,000 baby boy names from 2019, as determined by birth certificate data. The 2020 information is not yet available.

In addition to this list, you can search the entire SSA database for over 100 years worth of baby name data, from 1879 forward, on your search for the best name for your baby boy.
