Special name meanings for boys.

Many parents like to consider the meaning of a name to help them or completely decide on what name to choose for their child. Names with special meanings can even be used as a middle name to supplement a name you've already chosen as a first name.

Here are some of my favorite nice and cute meanings, with hints and tips on when they could be used.

Special meaning: Physical Feature
This is where you choose a name which has a literal meaning to describe your son. Features such as hair color or gender are good examples for this, the feature you chose is more factual than bias such as "good-looking" :).
Some ideas:
  • Abel, meaning "son" in Hebrew. A cute idea maybe for a first son.
  • Aelwyn, (arl-wein), meaning "white, fair" in Welsh.
  • Boyd, meaning "yellow hair" in Gaelic.
  • Caesar, meaning "dark hair", "long hair" and "head of hair" in Latin. For a baby boy born with a nice bit of hair!
  • Carl, Cary, Charles, meaning "man" in Old German. Cute for parents who call their sons their "Little man", especially if paired with a first name that means "little/small"
  • Cecil, meaning "blind" in Latin.
  • Cormac, meaning "son" in Irish Gaelic.
  • Crispin, meaning "curly" in Latin. For a little boy with Curls!
  • Darren, meaning "small one" in Gaelic.
  • Derry, meaning "red-headed" in Gaelic. For all the carrot-topped cuties.
  • Dexter, meaning "right-handed" in Latin.
  • Dwayne, meaning "dark little one" in Irish Gaelic.
  • Dwight, meaning "white, fair" in Old English.
  • Elvis, meaning "elf-like" in Old English. For baby boys with cute little ears.
  • Farley, meaning "fair" in Old French.
  • Finbar, meaning "fair-headed" in Gaelic.
  • Finn, meaning "fair" in Irish Gaelic.
  • Julian, meaning "fair-skinned" in Latin.
  • Kane, meaning "dark" in Celtic.
  • Keir, meaning "dark-skinned" in Irish Gaelic
  • Kieran, meaning "dark one" in Irish.
  • Kumar, meaning "son" in Sanskrit.
  • Paul, Pablo, meaning "small" in Greek.
  • Poco, meaning "little" in Italian. This one would be cute as a nickname for a baby.
  • Rory, meaning "red-haired one" in Gaelic.
  • Rufus, meaning "red-haired one" in Latin.
  • Russell, meaning "red-haired" in Old French.
  • Sven, meaning "boy" in Norse.
  • Vaughn, meaning "little" in Old Welsh, and "small" in Celtic.
Special meaning: surviving through hardship.
This is for babies who have been born premature, through complications or have disabilities but are looking positive, enduring it or hanging in there.
Some ideas:
  • Abir, meaning "strong" and "heroic" in Hebrew.
  • Archibald, meaning "noble" and "bold" in Germanic.
  • Ardal, meaning "high valour" in Irish.
  • Bernatd, meaning "as brave and bold as a bear" in Germanic.

  • Maynard, meaning "strong" in Old German.
  • Owen, meaning "lucky" in Greek.
  • Rolf, meaning "renowned for bravery" and "courage" in Old German.
Special meaning: naming after a loved one.
Naming your child after a family or friend but are stuck for a first or middle name? Don't like there name at all? These meanings are cute in certain situations (As another idea, names with 'characteristic' meanings can work well when naming after loved ones. Your dads name is Mark at you hate it? But he's a real nice guy and you want to use it as a middle name? Something like Allan (meaning 'cheerful' in Irish Gaelic) Mark would be cute, meaning Cheerful Mark). When naming after a good friend, a name meaning "friend" used as a middle name can be cute, or using a name with the meaning "friend" when you don't like your friends name is another option!
