Spring Names For Boys







Hello everyone! Not too long ago, I shared with you some spring names for girls and now it;s the boys turn! This list was significantly harder to put together but there are some great boys names that are perfect names for spring! I hope you like them!





Harley
English
"hare clearing"
Ranked #641

Harley is a name with a super manly association---Harley Davidson motorcycles. However, it's actual meaning is kind of cute and fluffy---- a meadow full of bunnies. I think this name is very handsome for a boy but it is much more popular for girls at #349.

Trenton
English
"town near gushing water"
Ranked #305

Trenton is a cool name with a very on-trend sound. Trent's most direct meaning is "Trent's town" and Trent means "gushing water", hence the meaning "town near gushing water". I don't know about where you live, but where I live, spring can mean flooding or gushing water. Trenton is such a handsome and strong name!


Leo
Latin
"lion"
Ranked #97

Leo is such a handsome name meaning "lion". Leo would be great for a boy born at the beginning of March, "in like a lion, out like a lamb". Leo is a name all on its own but it can also be a short form of Leonardo, Leopold, or even Lionel.


Ari
Hebrew
"lion"
Ranked #441

Ari is a wonderful, fun Hebrew name meaning "lion". Again, it would be great for a boy born at the beginning of March. A longer form would be Ariel meaning "lion of God". Ariel is #738 for boys and #133 for girls.


Cordero
Spanish
"lamb"
Not ranked in the top 1000

Cordero is such a cool sounding name! This is actually the Spanish word for lamb. I remember singing a lot of songs in Spanish about "el Cordero de Dios", "the Lamb of God". Of course, this is on the list because March is "in like a lion, out like a lamb". I've never heard this as a first name for anyone, but I have heard it as a last name. Some wonderful nicknames could be Cory, Cord, Cor, or Ro.


Walden
English
"wooded valley"
Not ranked in the top 1000

Walden is a very handsome and distinguished sounding name meaning "wooded valley", which conjures a very spring-like image to me. This name is very strongly associated with Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond. Names with the -en ending are very popular these days and Walter is somewhat on the rise, so maybe Walden has a chance too!


English
"dry wood meadow"
Not in the top 1000

Truett is such an adorable name! I have no idea why it's not used more. It sounds a lot like the word "true" but it actually comes from older English roots and means "dry wood meadow". The dry wood part might be more reminiscent of summer than spring, but meadows always remind me of spring. Truett (which can also be spelled Truitt) with the nickname True would be so cute, but still age well.


Beckett
English
"bee cottage"
Ranked #244

Beckett is a name on the rise! Beckett's meaning, "bee cottage", is super intriguing! It's included on this list because of all the bees that buzz in the springtime. I predict that this name will eventually rise to the top 100. Shorter form Beck is not in the top 1000.


English
"green valley"
Not ranked in the top 1000

Denver is a fun U.S. place name that could be unisex but it's not widely used for either gender. An English meaning for Denver is "green valley", a very springy meaning. A French meaning is "from Anvers". I think this name has a lot of potential.


Colorado
Spanish
"colorful"
Not in the top 1000

Denver not your style? What about Colorado? Colorado is a very distinctive U.S. State name and Spanish word meaning "colored" or "colorful". Spring is a very colorful time with vibrant greens and brightly colored wildflowers. Colorado would make a very striking first or middle name. 


Bentley
English
"bent grass meadow"
Ranked #89

Bentley is another meadow name that fits in great with a spring theme. The -ley ending is very fashionable for both boys and girls right now and the Ben- prefix is also very popular for boys. It's a combination for popularity.


Julian
Latin
"youthful"
Ranked #47

Julian is a variant of the ancient name Julius meaning "youthful". The "youthful" meaning is what makes it perfect for spring, the season where trees bud, flowers bloom, and baby animals are born. Julian is favored by both celebrities and citizens alike! Original form Julius is much less common and variant Jules is not in the top 1000.


Berry
English
"berry"
Not in the top 1000

Berry would be an interesting botanical name to use all on its own. It's on this list because spring is the time to pick berries! Berry and Barry are nicknames for a variety of different names. This name will probably always remind me of my favorite name website Nameberry.


Huckleberry
English
"huckleberry"
Not in the top 1000

Huckleberries are actually berries, believe it or not. Mark Twain named his iconic character after a colloquial term meaning "humble". Despite the adorable nickanme Huck, Huckleberry is completely guilty pleasure territory for most people, unless you're a celebrity. More than one celebrity have used this for a first or middle name, notably Brad Paisley and Bear Grylls.


Yarrow
English
"rough stream"
Not ranked in the top 1000

Yarrow is a fun botanical word name and botanical names are great for spring, but real reason it's included is because it means "rough stream". Streams are usually rougher in the spring. Yarrow is also included because I love it!


Phyllon
Greek
"leaf"
Not ranked in the top 1000

Phyllon is a Greek name meaning "leaf" and a male version of Phyllis. It's a very interesting name that's unique but has a familiar sound.


'
Leaf
English
"leaf"
Not in the top 1000

Leaf is a fun and unique nature name that's bound to turn heads. I think it would be a really cool middle name. 


Robin
English
"robin" or "bright fame"
Not in the top 1000

Lots of bird names would be great spring names but robins are particularly associated with spring. Robin was very popular for girls in decades past but it has a long history as a boys name. I think it's time to revive Robin for boys!

Westley
English
"west meadow"
Not in the top 1000

Another meadow name for spring! The Wesley spelling is more common at #130 but Westley is the Princess Bride spelling so that's a really cool association. 

Barclay
English
"birch meadow"
Not in the top 1000

Barclay is a very distinctive name meaning "birch meadow". I associate this name with William Barclay, Scottish theologian, minister, and professor. This name could honor a Clay, even though you pronounce the finial syllable of Barclay "lee". Because it begins with the "bark" sound, this is also a popular name for dogs, but it's still very usable for a human.


Hartley
English
"deer meadow"
Not in the top 1000

Hartley is a very handsome name and one of my favorites on this list. The images of deer in a meadow is so charming! This name could be unisex but I prefer it on a boy. Hart is such a cute nickname!


Kit
English
"baby fox" , a diminutive of Christopher
Not in the top 1000

Kit is a cute one-syllable name, though I prefer it as a nickname for Christopher. It's on this list because it's what you call a baby fox as well as many other baby animals. I don't think Kit is too bad on its own but it might sound a tad juvenile when the kid grows up so I think Christopher nn Kit would be a better choice. Kit is a refreshing nickname to use for the ultra-popular Christopher, since it's likely to be shortened and Chris might feel a little tired in 2016.


Lowell
French 
"young wolf"
Not in the top 1000

Lowell is a fun, uncommon French name that means young wolf. It's very common for animals to have their babies in the spring, so pretty much any animal name is appropriate, especially ones that mean a young or baby animals. This is a cool name with potential in my opinion!


Latin and English
"bear cub"
Not in the top 1000

Orson, another baby animal name, is so very cool! "Bear cub" is an awesome meaning and even though it refers to a baby bear, I don't think it will sound too juvenile when little Orson grows up. This name is very heavily associated with science fiction as well because of actor and filmmaker Orson Welles and author Orson Scott Card.


Colt
English
"a young male horse"
Ranked #339

Here's one final baby animal name for you and that's Colt. Like Orson, even though it's talking about a baby animal, it projects an image of strength. It's a really fun one-syllable name and a great alternative to the very popular Colton. If you're looking for an even less popular variation, there's Colter meaning "colt herder", which is not in the top 1000.


Hungarian
"life"
Not in the top 1000

Zoltan is a really fun sounding Hungarian name meaning "life" that sounds right on trend! A Z beginning and an -en sounding ending sound give this name a fighting chance. Life is one of my favorite name meanings overall and it's so fitting for a spring baby!



Well, there you have it!  There are some wonderful boys names that are great choices for a baby boy born in the spring and I hope this gave you some ideas!
