Classic Boys' Names From Nameberry: The Hottest Baby Name Choices Now

Posted: Updated:

Written by Linda Rosenkrantz for Nameberry

Classic names are just as hot for boys as they are for girls these days -- but there’s a difference. Most of the vintage boys’ names that are rising in popularity aren’t traditional classics like William and James, which have never been subject to the whims of fashion. Nor are they fusty Victorian vestiges like Clarence and Elmer. Mainly, we are seeing names that date from much further back in time regain popularity.

The most popular classic boys’ names at this moment are either a) offbeat biblical choices rarely heard in modern times, or b) true classics dating from the Roman era. Those listed below -- some of which might surprise you -- all feature on the official list of fastest-rising boys’ names in the past year.
