A List of Boys Names

with Meanings and Origins

These Names are Selected for the Sound and Meaning with Countries of Origin included

from a 5-6 month Special Project because I heard of some awful names some parents are calling

their child like Carr for a Boy and Atlas for a girl (believe it or not). Names have real importance to me

and they should for every parent. We are giving someone a Name for Life and every time

someone says our name, it has a meaning. These are all the best names I've found in tireless research

for you so your experience is a pleasant one - selecting a name for a child or even a nickname for oneself

if you are not happy with a name you have been given. It's often hard to find lots of boys names. Not now!

There are some really good names in this extensive List. I wish you well with your selection. ENJOY
