Top Baby Names for Your New Baby Boy

When choosing a baby name for your baby boy, there are many factors to consider. You want a name he’ll like (after all, he’ll be living with it for a long time to come!). But you should also choose a name that you won’t mind saying over, and over, and over again -- because you will! From congratulating your son on his first steps to reminding him that mud is not for eating to insisting that veggies are indeed for eating, you’re going to be tossing his name about right and left after he’s born. So choose a baby name you love!

Of course, choosing the perfect name is often easier said than done. If endless hours of pursuing baby name books haven’t gotten you very far, it may be time to consider some international inspiration. Read on for top baby boy names from around the world.

Once you’ve narrowed down your baby name search to a few monikers, practice saying them aloud for a few weeks. And ask your partner or a trusted friend to say the names out loud, so you can get an idea of what the name sounds like when someone else says it. You may find that certain names just don’t roll off your tongue, while others seem to be a sure fit for your baby-to-be. And remember: It’s okay if you go into labor without the perfect baby name picked. It may take just one look at your new baby’s adorable little face to help you figure out what his name should be.
