Best First Names for a Boy

The Top Ten

1 Tyler

Personally, Tyler is too common. It's also associated with the cliche jock or player or bad boy, which ruins it. It's so common that I know 19 people in my town (and trust me, the town I live in is tiny) that's named Tyler. It sucks yet is alright. I prefer Tyson because it's more unique.

Tyler is my only son's name. He is four and my only boy I will ever have because I wanted three kids but got a pair of girl twins, but I love Love LOVE the name Tyler the second best on here is Jason the Blake. But I love the name Tyler.

My cousin’s name. Beautiful but I would not pick it if it were my kid - Aleca

Pretty Boys Have That Name! They Can't Get Teased In School, They Would Get A Good Girlfriend And Teachers Would Love To Call On It Because,.. Its Simply Awesome! Vote Tyler!

2 Andrew

Love the name Andrew. Sweet, sporty, but also easy to spell and most of the Andrew’s I know are cute. - Aleca

That's my boyfriends name and I think its Very attractive!

Blake, And tyler are above Andrew? What the heck That is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. Blake, seriously that is a punk name, and tyler, come on that is a girly boy name. Andrew, on the other hand is my name, and the best name ever. Andrew means strong, manly, and courageous.

Seriously?! Blake and Tyler are better names than Andrew! Sorry if that's offensive to you and all the other Andrews, but you were being offensive to Tyler and Blake.

This is the most amazing boys' name EVER! Andy when he's little, Andrew when he's older, and Drew as an adult! I don't know what it is about this name, but it just sounds AMAZING!

3 Jack

Jack is the name of my dead brother. He died after New Year's Day. :( He was aged 2 months old. :( - Wolftail

I HATE how everyone just votes for their own name! I mean really. I'm such a Hippocrate my names jack.

That's my name... Really common between boys, but it makes it special cause I'm a girl - MyNameIsJack

Jack is my first name all though it's a nick name its awesome simple PLEASE VOTE JACK

4 John

Well... John isn't the worst name but... It is not my most favorite name.

It's the best and has the most meaning and famous people with this name would never change my name ever

I love this name. It means 'God is gracious'. If I had a boy, I would name him John.

I like my name John

5 Blake

I really like the name Blake and it just reaches out to me, I guess.

It sounds like a name for a hockey player or someone who likes hockey. - PhoenixAura81

Blake is my sons name, he's almost 18 and I still think it's the best name ever! - luvtoread

I know a Blake and they are a little kid who lives near a playground. But once when we visited them he kept on following me around asking my name. When I told him he kept on asking me. So sorry guys, I don't like the name. - FinnsWorld
