Top 50 Powerful Baby Names

User Rating: / 22

We’ve compiled the top 50 powerful baby names for your boy or girl. The definition of “power” can vary for each person. And every individual’s idea of the kind of people who represent power can fluctuate as well. A-list actors and actresses wield a certain amount of power (usually through face recognition or their bank account) but you may think your neighborhood patriarch is the kind of person who represents genuine strength and power.

Powerful baby namesPoliticians have power, and some use it for good while others use it for evil. There are real-life heroes and there are superheroes – while some may consider Barack Obama a hero, a lit-lover might give that title to someone like Edgar Allen Poe or even Atticus Finch, the hero in To Kill a Mockingbird.

There are serious names that imply class and a no-nonsense attitude. And there are names that have that pie-in-the-sky idealism wrapped around them, making you think of dreamers rather than powerful forces. Whatever your definition of power, the following big names in today’s pop culture and high society boast a certain amount of influence – perhaps you want to echo their moniker by bestowing a similar name on your child.

Whatever name you bestow upon your son or daughter, whether a one-syllable powerhouse (Jack or Eve) or a multi-syllabic royal moniker (Alexander or Margaret), the power they craft in their own lifetime doesn’t stem so much from their name as from what you teach them. Power comes from within, but having a good, solid name sure doesn’t hurt.
