Aiden (Irish) meaning Little Fire. This popular name is a strong choice for a lively little boy.

Aaron (Hebrew) meaning lofty; exalted; high mountain. Another very popular boys name with a Biblical flavor – Aaron was Moses’ older brother and played an important role in the Exodus.

Abbott (English/Scottish) this name is borrowed from the occupational surname of Abbott which is a word derived from the Aramaic abba, meaning “Father.” An abbot is the the superior of a monastic community. This name follows the modern trend of using surnames as first names and is a great example of it done well.

Abe (Hebrew) meaning Father of a multitude. This Biblical inspired baby name references Abraham the father of the nation of Israel.

Abel (Hebrew) meaning breath, vapor, or son. Another Biblical “A” name for boys: Abel is usually heard about in context of the Biblical telling of Cain and Abel and the first murder. Although this may be a bit of a downer, Abel was the dutiful son who pleased God with his sacrifices.

Alec or Alexander (Greek) meaning Defender of men; protector of mankind. These two names are similar in sound and share the same meaning. If you prefer a classic sounding name, you can’t go past Alexander, a name that’s been on the most popular list for a long time. If you’d prefer something fresher and less common, try Alec! It’s slightly spunkier and more contemporary than Alexander or Alex.

Alfred (English) meaning counsel.

Algernon (French) meaning moustached man. This vintage name is sure to make a comeback if the trend for old-names-made-new continues. Cute nicknames for this one include Algie and Al.

Ali (Arabic) meaning “high”, “elevated” or “champion”.

Amos (Hebrew) meaning borne by God. This is the name of a Biblical prophet whose words are recorded in the Book of Amos.

Anakin (American) meaning Warrior. Does this name sound familiar? If you’re a Star Wars fan, you’ll recognize it as the first name of Anakin Skywalker. Created by George Lucas, this name is pretty uncommon and will definitely show your love of the series.

Anchor (English) meaning stability. This is a great, modern sounding name with a strong meaning. Perfect for your little boy!

Anders (Scandinavian) meaning strong and manly.

Anderson (English) meaning son of Anders/Andrew. This name is usually found as a surname. But, why not take advantage of the modern trend of using surnames as first names and nab it for your little guy?
