Finding popular baby boy names that start with F is no easy feat! But I kept thinking about the boys and men I’ve known throughout my life and I looked through several baby websites and I was able to come up with more than I thought I would. Sometimes it’s more fun to give a name that is trickier to find because it’s like playing a game and feeling like you’ve won! That’s how I’m feeling about these baby boy F names anyway.
I’m partial to the name Fred because my grandpa’s name was Fred. I loved spending time with my grandpa. He was short and walked 4 miles a day until about 3 weeks before he passed away. He was smart and funny and sassy. You didn’t mess with Fred but let me tell you, he was the most kind, generous, and patient man I had known up until I met my husband. Maybe that’s part of why I love my husband so much!
I hope you find the perfect name for your new baby boy in the list of popular baby names that start with F that I’ve given below!
