You’ve been calling your bump ‘spud’ for the last nine months. Now it’s time to think about a proper name for your baby boy.

For some parents this is simple if they have a name in mind that they love. For others it’s a stressful decision, after all this is the name your child will use for the rest of their lives (unless they hate it and decide to change it by deed poll later!).

To help ease the agonising we’ve got some suggestions for baby boy names, one of which might be the perfect fit.

  • I work with special needs children and have 3 girls and 3 boys in my care. All 3 of the boys names made the list.


  • I love the top ten lists purely so I know what names to steer away from. Particularly when they get to primary school and might have another child named the same in their class


  • None of these names really jumps out for me. My sons name is not on the list and I’m glad about that


  • I didn’t opt for trends, popularity, weirdness, originality etc when choosing baby names. Theyre not the only ones with their names, but that’s ok


  • My son isn’t on any of them, thankfully! Majority of them are all too common and there will be classrooms full of them


  • We chose Hudson 3 years before actually having our beautiful boy before realising it was in the top 20.


  • Such a good list of names


  • Great list of names, quite a few you hear of often but a lot not so much. I have a friend with a Mateo and this is the first time I have ever seen the name again.


  • Happy to see, or not see actually, my boys names on here. I never was one to follow fashion or trends set by others


  • Some of those names are lovely and some are just plain weird


  • Neither of my boys name appear on any of those lists.. but I like that they are not listed under any of those grouping. :)


  • I want jayden if I get a boy


  • Some of these names I certainly like, some I dislike.


  • We only had one boys name and that was Logan


  • I wanted to name my boy zayden but we settled on brodie (dads choice) and I’m very happy we chose a gender neutral name :)
