130 Unique Baby Names for Boys from A to Z

When trying to choose a name for your baby boy, you want a moniker that stands out and helps tell your child’s story. Classic baby names like Armand, Aiden, and Alexander are indeed wonderful, but it’s always a great idea to think outside of the box and find a name that helps your child stand out from the rest.

After all, you do not want your son to be one of three so-and-so’s in a classroom. Please do not relegate him to being Alex K. or Alex S. It’s tempting to hand down a family name that’s very common. Resist that temptation and go for something with a little razzle-dazzle. You’ll be very glad you did when you’re constantly complimented by other parents for making a bold choice. We went through every letter of the alphabet and handpicked special names for each that are handsome and full of charm.
