Pampers Picks: Top 20 Baby Boy Names For 2023

If you’re looking for an awesome boy name that’s modern and fresh, you’re probably searching for what’s popular and trendy in 2023. While you wait for the SSA to publish their top boy names for 2022, we’ve scoured the trends and come up with our own predictions for the most popular baby boy names of 2023.

In 2023, baby boy name trends may mix old and new, traditional and unexpected. You’ll want to look for classic monikers that have a trendy yet vintage edge, such as the following:

1. Austin. Combine a trendy city name with an ancient origin. Austin, Texas, is one of the hippest cities in the United States, but the name also has a deeper meaning, as it comes from the Roman name Augustinus. Because this name derives from Augustus, Austin means “exalted.”

2. Easton. The name Easton has quite a cool sound to it, again mixing old and new. Easton can be a modern place name, though its origins come from Old English to mean “east town.”

3. Elias. You’ll find the name Elias is numerous languages and cultures. It’s a slightly cooler form of the Hebrew name Elijah, which means “my God is Yahweh,” as Yahweh is the Hebrew God.

4. Gabriel. Another Hebrew name, Gabriel is making a modern comeback as a polished moniker with sing-song sound. It means “God is my strong man.”

5. Jameson. Any name with the word or sound of “son” at the end typically means the son of the beginning of the moniker. So, in this case, Jameson means “the son of James.” It’s perfectly cute even if you’re not a James! Plus, it has English and Irish origins.

6. Levi. In English, Levi is pronounced LEE-vie, though other languages might pronounce it more like LEV-vee. It’s another hip yet old name, a Hebrew moniker meaning “joined, attached.”

7. Maverick. Give your little boy a strong and cool name with Maverick, a word that means “independent.” The name actually comes from a 19th-century Texas rancher who decided to do things a little different and not brand his calves. You might also recognize it from a character in the movie Top Gun.

8. Noah. Yes, another Hebrew name tops this list. There’s just something so endearing about the historic origins and the hip sounds of these monikers that make them popular in 2023. Noah means “rest, repose.”

9. Ronan. There seems to be a point when an old-fashioned name becomes hip, and the time is now for the moniker Ronan. It’s currently soaring in popularity in the United States, so it’s sure to be used a lot in 2023. Ronan is a Breton name from Old Irish and has the adorable meaning of “little seal.”

10. Sebastian. Again, 2023 is the year to give this old-fashioned name a trendy, modern moment. You can make it even cooler with the nickname Seb. From a Latin name, Sebastian means “from Sebaste,” which was once a place in modern day Turkey.

Another trend that you might see for 2023 baby boy names is a gender-neutral theme. Some awesome boy names that work for any gender and still combine the old with the new, include the following:

11. Alex. This is one of the most popular names around the world, as Alex is the short form of either Alexander or Alexandra. Both come from the Latinized Greek name Alexandros meaning “defending men.”

12. Ash. Short for Ashley, a gender-neutral name that was once more commonly used for boys and switched to be more popular with girls in the 1970s. By shortening it to Ash, you have a pretty hip moniker. It comes from an English word meaning “tree.”

13. Blake. Though typically more popular for boys, the name Blake is actually going to be equally used for boys and girls in 2023, making it the perfect pick for a unisex moniker. It comes from the Old English word to mean “black.”

14. Bobby. Is Bobby cool? It is now, especially as a gender-neutral option. To keep it trendy, the key is to use Bobby and not Bob. Plus, it has the wonderful meaning of “bright fame.”

15. Eden. Eden might only make you think of a girls’ name, but it’s actually been a gender-neutral option for a long time. In the United States, it’s getting a boost as a boys’ name. Eden is Hebrew and means “pleasure, delight.”

16. Jesse. Not only cute, but the name Jesse also has a very special meaning. As a Hebrew name, it means “gift,” and surely your new baby is an absolute gift!

17. Quinn. Cute, hip, and gender-neutral, Quinn is an Irish name derived from the moniker Conn. You have your pick of meanings, as Quinn can mean either “sense, reason” or “head, chief.”

18. Reese. Though the actor Reese Witherspoon popularized this name for girls starting in the early 2000s, Reese is also a boys’ name. It comes from the Welsh name Rhys, which could be an even cuter and cooler spelling option. It means “enthusiasm.”

19. Remi. This adorable French name had its popularity moment in 2007 thanks to the movie Ratatouille. But soon after, it became almost just as trendy for girls. Remi, pronounced REH-MEE, has a literal meaning of “rower.”

20. Wren. Sharing their name with a songbird, your little Wren will surely be music to your ears! This name has always been unisex in the United Kingdom and 2023 is the year for it to follow suit in the United States.
