300 Best Names for Baby Boys with Meaning – For American Parents

Perhaps, one of the most strenuous task for parents during pregnancy is to come up with a satisfying baby name. They are always looking for the best baby names that would sound astoundingly good, as well have a good meaning to carry on.

There are also a lot of studies going on in this matter, which clearly signifies the importance of “Baby Names”. These days, researches also started ranking baby names on the basis of their popularity and meaningfulness, which further led parents to be relatively careful and choosy in matter of naming their babies.

Time has certainly changed, as naming babies were relatively easier, earlier in the 1900s, than it is now. The trend shift of baby names also distinctively divulges the names that were popular in the 1900s to the names that are now. Studies show that one-syllable names like Roy, James, Earl, etc. were popular then. Two syllable names like David, Leonard, Howard were also among the list. As of now, unique and hipster names are being popular among American parents.

Celebrities have certainly started to set a trend for baby names with hipster names like North, Saint, Luna, Archie, etc. A baby’s name may or may not have a meaning to it. Sometimes it’s just a one-syllable name like John and sometimes it’s named with deeper meaning like Luna, Hope, Justice. The uniqueness of the meanings and their values also determine the likability and popularity of the names.
