When it comes to finding a baby boy name, you want one that conveys strength and power. Whether it’s a regal name with a touch of royalty or a strong name of African origin, these powerful names for boys are saturated with cultural heritage and meaning.
The most popular baby boy names remain Liam, Oliver, Noah and Henry this year. However, there are a number of other powerful names making waves including:
Charles – A classic with German and French origins, this name means free man and has the potential for many cute nicknames such as Charlie (and even Chaz!)
Arthur – Another classic with Irish roots, this name is gaining in popularity especially since Pippa Middleton welcomed her son, Arthur into her family. It’s also a great choice for those looking to honor their military family members with a strong name.
Ethan – a Hebrew name that translates to ‘strong or firm’, this traditional male name has an air of majesty and power. Emeka – An African name that translates to ‘one who is great’, this powerful moniker has a sense of achievement and potential.
Other names that made it on to the list include Amir, Amon, Anton, Kylian, Jamal and Turner. Some names that fell off this year include Jacoby, Cameron, Aydin and Juelz.
