Top 100 Boys Names for 2021

Get inspired by the 100 most popular baby boy names trending this year so far.

Congratulations, you’re having a boy! Now comes the tricky part: What will you name him? If you’re in need of some inspiration, not to worry. We have the list of the top 100 boys’ names right here. (Not sure about the sex of your baby? You’re going to want to peek at our list of the top 100 girls names too!).

This list is based on accumulated data from the current year and is updated every day from our network of hospitals across the U.S. – so it is always showing the latest trends! Whether you are looking for an uber trendy name, a classic favorite, or something in between, there are plenty of great options on this list of the top 100 boys’ names.

If you think the most popular names on this list look familiar, you’re right. Once a name becomes popular, it usually sticks around for awhile. You’ll find that’s true throughout history. Some names come into fashion, become super popular, and rule the charts for years. From there, they either become classics, or fall completely out of fashion and disappear for a few decades (or more).

Take a peek at this list even if you’ve already chosen your baby boy’s name. It’s always smart to check on the popularity of a name before you ink it on the birth certificate. The name you pick could be one of the most popular boys’ names being used right now. If that’s the case, you should expect that when your son begins school, he’ll likely have a classmate or two with the same name. Would that bother you? If the answer is yes, you might want to consider other options.

Then again, there’s the chance that the name you love isn’t even on this list of the top 100 boys’ names. There might be a few reasons for that, including if you’re using a unique spelling, or if your name is very unusual. A name that isn’t in the top 100 list isn’t necessarily an unpopular name. It might be on the cusp of coming into favor, and you happen to be ahead of the trend.

Good luck on your search for a baby name!
