Baby boys are so darn cute!
I am so excited continue our series of baby names for each of the letters of the alphabet! Over the last couple of days, I have been trying to think of different “A” names for boys on my own without looking at The Bump, Baby Center, or any other fun baby name sites but it is a lot harder than it seems. The same names kept running through my mind and I didn’t know what to do. I kept thinking, “Good thing we have the whole entire internet at the tips of our fingers so we can go find what we need at a moments notice, right?”
I thoroughly enjoy searching for exciting and unique names for children. As I’ve said before, names give identity, strength, and a sense of who we are and where we came from. So, without further adieu, here is the list of boy names that are absolutely adorable and that start with the letter A!
Aaron is Hebrew and means endearing or mountain of strength. Aaron was the brother of Moses in the bible. The Aaronic Priesthood is named after Aaron as well. My son’s friend, named Aaron, has always been very endearing to our family and shows tremendous strength in all situations.
Abel means breath or vapor and is a Hebrew name. Abel is very well known in the Bible because he is the son of Adam and Eve and was killed by his brother Cain. This adorable name has soared in popularity over the last few years.
Abraham comes from the Hebrew language and means father of a multitude. I love this name because it makes me think of someone who is kind and respectful to his parents and family.
Alexander is a Greek name meaning “defender of men”. It has been a strong and popular name for centuries. Alexander the Great and Alexander Hamilton are well known men and continue to grace our history books.
Alfredo is a British name meaning elf or magical. We met the nicest man named Alfredo recently and he set a great example of hard work and dedication for our family. I think that Alfredo is one of the most kind and happy names for a boy, which is why it is on my list.
Andrew is a Greek name and means strong manly, courageous, and warrior. Andrew was one of Jesus Christ’s 12 apostles and many Saints have been named Andrew since. I can only imagine that anyone with this name is bound to move mountains.
Anthony is a Latin name and means priceless. There are many saints who bear the name Anthony. New moms are bound to consider a name that means exactly how she feels about him…priceless.
Asher is Hebrew for happy or blessed. Asher is the eighth son of Joseph and was promised a life of blessings and abundance, according to the Bible. In more modern times, the name typically means someone who lives by an ash tree.
Austin is Latin but the English and French claim the name as theirs as well. Austin means majestic or great one. The capitol of the great state of Texas is Austin. I can’t imagine a little boy NOT wanting this name!
Avery has several meanings from several origins. Avery came from the last name Alfred which means wise. In French Avery means ruling with elf-wisdom and in English it means counselor. Any way you look at it, this name is just cool and any young boy would be proud to have it.
I hope you enjoyed this list of baby boy names that start with A. Thoughtfully choosing a name and teaching our boys about who they are will help us raise great men who are kind, respectful, strong, and brave.
