Top 10 Best First Names for a Boy

The Top Ten
1 Tyler

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 then Blake. But I love the name Tyler.

My savior is Tyler Joseph from Twenty One Pilots, so this has to be one of my all-time favorite names.

Tyler makes me think of a fit and cute boy. I love the name, but I don't know anyone with it.

2 Andrew

Blake and Tyler are above Andrew? What the heck! That is the most stupid thing I have ever heard. Blake, seriously, 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.

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 my name, and it's the best name ever. Andrew means strong, manly, and courageous. Saint Andrew the apostle is a good example of that courage.

3 Jack

Well, I like the name Jack. Jack is my boyfriend, and Jack sounds really nice! I have many friends named Jack.

It's great if you're an Irish YouTuber! This name lacks in effort, but the person who does have this name is strong and brave.

Overall: 8.7/10

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

4 Blake

This is a great name! It really shows off all the potential a person with this name has. The only thing better than this is Blaze.

Overall: 9.8

I have a baby sister named Blake! I like the name Blake, and it works for both girls and boys.

Blake is my son's name. He's almost 18, and I still think it's the best name ever!

5 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 name for a boy.

Noah is my name, and my identical twin brother is called Niall. He says he would love to swap names with me!

I love the name! However, I've only met one guy named Noah, and he's in my class.

6 Logan

I think I'm picking this name for my son. It's such a strong and mysterious name.

This is interesting! Logan is a great name for a sporty and relaxed dude, great for Hawaii.

Overall: 8.6/10

7 John

I love this name anyway, and both my hubby and my dad are called John, so it's got to mean something special to me. I just couldn't call my son this because of this reason. I can't have everyone special in my life called John.

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

I like this name. It's simple, yet formal enough to be a full name.

8 Ryan

Apparently, all the mean boys are named Ryan? Well, that's weird, but it doesn't affect the actual name. One of my OCs is named Ryan, and he is definitely not mean. I was elated when I saw this name on the list.

Wholesome, manly name. Anyone with the first name Ryan will be liked by all and lead a happy, productive life!

Ryan is your typical Canadian name, eh? Seriously, this name is like, exclusive to Canadians, and I have to say, it's great!

Overall: 9/10

9 James

I think James is a great name. My friend watches a show called Big Time Rush and loves it. One of the main characters is named James, so rock on!

Love it! My dad, my grandpa, and my great-great grandpa all had that name! I'm even considering naming my kid that. (And if you're wondering, my name is NOT James, it's a boys' name.)

This is my name. I am awesome, and that is why the name is the best. I rule the world.

10 William

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!

Justice William Rehnquist, who recently passed away, bore this name. Justice Rehnquist was a United States jurist who served as an associate justice in the U.S. Supreme Court from 1972 to 1986, when he was appointed chief justice (born 1924).

Yes, I super like this name. William, Will, whatever. It's a cool name all around. Will is cute and short, for a child, and they can grow into William as an adult.

The Contenders
11 Liam

I have a cousin named Liam. His name means "determined protector" in Celtic.

A very cool name. I much prefer it to William (the longer version).

12 Michael

I don't know why, but I have always liked the name Michael. My old friend (not anymore) has this name. I hate him, but I still like the name. Tell me why?

Beautiful name. I love it, partly because I'm a fan of Michael Jackson, and also because it sounds very nice. Lovely name. Love you, Michael Jackson!

My real name is Michelle, but everyone calls me Michael, and I really love it!

13 Ethan

Same, I have a crush named Ethan! Ethan can be sweet, kind, unique, intelligent, committed, faithful, and loyal. However, this name means strength, and it's common for boys. I vote for this name also because it sounds cute.

I love the name Ethan. I think it sounds so cute!

This is just about my favorite name!

14 Jason

Jason is an awesome name. I've heard so many people with this name. It's a great name. Vote for this name, please.

Jason is a really good name, I love it. By the way, it's mine. My father was called Jason, just like me.

I haven't met a Jason I haven't liked. They're usually very artistic and unique.

15 Matthew

I have always loved this name. It sounds great. Even though my name is Andrew, I think this is the best name. Some people don't deserve this name. A lot of people I see named Matthew don't really look like a Matthew.

This is the name of both my brother and one of my best friends. I mean, come on, how is this not at least in the top 5?

My mom named me Matthew after a kid who was the best son a mother could have. I was the same for her.

16 Chris

Chris is a shortening of Christopher. Christopher means Christ-bearer. Chris is one of the best names ever.

Really cool name. To all guys named Chris out there, your parents have a good taste in first names.

17 Aaron

I don't mind spelling/pronunciation difficulties some teachers might have when it comes to this name. I think it's one of the most beautiful boy names.

Super cool name. Very masculine but also kind of artistic.

Nice-sounding name, but it would be cooler if it were spelled "Eren." Right, AOT fans?

18 Justin

I don't know. Just when I think of the name, it sounds so cute. Probably because I used to like Justin Bieber when he was a kid, not now. And it sounds like a cool name too.

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

Justin Martin is an awesome DJ from San Francisco. Every Justin I've met was a cool, chill dude.

19 Kyle

I just like it because a lot of people with this name are pretty smart, and it means hurricane/typhoon.

Kyle is a great name because it is owned by me.

I like this name because of South Park!

20 Austin

Such a great name! Once I get older and marry someone, I'm naming my child Austin if it's a boy. What a beautiful name! Austin. It just has a beautiful sound to it. Vote Austin to the top!

Austin is my brother's name, and I've always liked the name. I think it's a cool name and really like it.

This name is amazing. I really like it. My crush is Austin. I also like the name Colin.

21 Sam

Love this name. It's not too exotic but not too common. And it's such a sweetheart type of name. Short for Samuel, a biblical name. I'd name my son Sam for sure.

The primary reason this is one of my favorite names is because my adorable nephew's name is Sam(uel)! The second reason, which is also very important, is that my best friend's name is Samantha, but she has always gone by Sam, so I feel very attached to it.

I am a girl, so I'm not voting for my own name like some people. But Sam is just hands down brilliant.

22 Jacob

Most amazing name ever. I think it's pretty cool.

It's my name, so it's cool. Tyler isn't, though.

Jake is my name. It's the best name ever. I like it. It sounds so awesome and great like Jake the Great.

23 Kevin

This is the best name ever! Everyone should be named this!

24 Peter

Definitely the best boy's name. I have no idea why I like it. It just sounds cool. Surprised it's not higher on the list.

Peter is a cool name. I don't like Peter from Family Guy, though.

I love this name! It's my idol's name "Peter Quill."

25 Jake

I love this name! I honestly couldn't choose between Jake, Austin, Aaron, and Alexander because I love all of these names so much! But since Jake was the lowest, I voted for it. Once I grow up, if I have a boy child, I'll name him either Jake, Aaron, Austin, or Alexander. And if I have four boys, then it won't be such a hard choice! The only problem is that I don't think there are any saints with the names Aaron and Austin, and I'm planning to name my children after saints. But maybe as middle names!

Not to mention, I've had good experiences with boys named Jake and Alexander (I've never met any Austins or Aarons yet). I have a very close friend named Alexander and a crush named Jake who is very nice but has unintentionally caused me heartbreak. But that's a different story.

My point is that I love the name Jake, and I think it deserves to be in the top ten right along with Aaron, Austin, and Alexander.
