User Rating: / 15

Are you looking for a masculine baby boy name? You may be seeking a boy's name that leaves no question as to its intended gender, or you may like names that sound strong, brave and sure. Many masculine-sounding names are short and to the point, while others are a little more elaborate. Be sure to check out our list of the best masculine names for boys and get inspired to name your little man!

Father and sonOften, a name that sounds masculine to your ears may be a traditional name that retains -- or regains -- its popularity throughout the years and is also used through more than one generation. If you associate an important man in your life (such as your father, grandfather or older brother) with a certain name it may have more of a masculine sound to it. Also, names from history will often sound quite masculine -- and even names of superheroes, such as Clark or Kent (Superman).

Other times a name may have a really cool meaning such as "dragon" or "rock" and the name itself might even sound like its meaning. Occupational names or transferred surnames have a masculine ring to them as well and would make a good option for you to consider.
