Best First Names for a Boy


The Top Ten

1 Tyler

I will NOT vote Tyler. One Tyler I know is very nice and has a crush on me (I don't feel the same way about him, and also he's only 11, I'm only 12). The other Tyler (age 9, 10 in September) is a complete and utter jerk who brags all the time. What's weird is that he has a ton of respect for me because I am the fastest person in our coop (we are both homeschooled) and am faster than all the boys--even the ones that are older and taller. Aside from all that, he is evil! I love the name Caleb because I have a huge crush on a Caleb who is only four days older than me! I love you, Caleb, and always will! I hope you feel the same!
(Side note: I also like the names, Jack and Jacob. Jack because my BFF's baby brother is the cutest baby EVER and I also like the name. Jacob because, well, I just like the name Jacob.) Tyler isn't a bad name, and I'm sure that a lot of you Tylers out there are kind (well, some of you), and I am not against the name because of my annoyance toward the ...more

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.

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!

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.

2 Andrew

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!

Andrew is the name of my best friend. - Qryzx

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.

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

That is my name! It's the best name and it sounds very cool.

4 Noah

I have a son called Noah he's the cutest thing and he's getting a brother soon I think I'll call him Hugo. Noah has two sisters called Lauren and holly which are my favorite girl names but Noah is the best names for a boy

Aw, That's my boyfriend's name! He's so cute.

I like the name because my little friend is called nosh he is 3 year old

Yeah it's rad.

5 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.

It's the best

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

This is my boyfriends name. We are in a long distance relationship since I moved. He lives 6 States away from me :( - LokiLaufeyson2000

Blake is a great name, both for girls and boys

Nah there are way to many Logans. It's way overused. Logan reminds me of some ugly troll. And the whole Logan Paul thing.

8 Ryan

The sexiest guy on earth (Ryan Ross) is named this! Damn this name is so SEXY!

Ryan is the worst possible name in the world. Sorry to all those good people called ryan but ryan Kennedy is the worst name ever and I live next door to him. He thinks I'm going to be happy that he lives next door to me.

I like the name Ryan but the guy that most of the girls at my school like is a total jerk his name is Ryan Kennedy and he is an idiot.

Bad name

I think James is a great name my friend watches a show called big time rush and loves it one if the main people is names James so rock on!

10 William

There is a boy at my school and his real name is William, and his middle name is Andrew so he does by Drew for short. He is actually attractive, and all the girls like him. But it sounds like more of a British name..

I think that this name is the best for a boy because it is my brother's name, and he is so awesome, funny, and cool. I mean, who wouldn't love that name. It's awesome!

William and billy are the best names because they are royal and I know a really really really cute guy called billy

It's my name

It's still a good name... just think about Justin Timberlake and NOT Justin Bieber.

Don't blame Justin Bieber for this! - Neonco31

He grabbed my hand violently and ran off, dragging me behind him. Cody raced after us and punched and kicked the man, then, Cody took my hand and we ran back to Emma and we all went to her house. I saw the man once again, he had a black eye and was limping and when he saw me ran away. CODY RULES! - Swiftdawn
