250 of the Best Boy Names for 2020

We are having a boy!

We spent months figuring out the boy’s name, researching the best boy names online and thinking about boy names we have come across in real life.

I saw many websites with thousands of boy names, and those were helpful, but I wanted to share with you an easy list of my own top 250 boy names for 2020.

We also scanned our recollection of pop culture and the whole cultural zeitgeist in the good old USA to find and curate the best boy names for 2020!  

One of the things that are very trendy right now is naming a boy sort of a ‘last name’ like “Lincoln” or “Walker”. Same goes for classy and cool sports, movie and TV character names, but not famous in overly poppy ways names, like “Anakin” or “Kylo”.

What is not “trendy” are meme names like Jaxon and Chance which are getting a bad rap nowadays. Sort of like the male version of the “Karen” meme. Rather, consider a strong masculine name that wont become a meme down the road.

Just for fun, you can find the most popular boy names in America using this government website. The department of Social Security actually counted the most popular names in America!

At long last, here are my favorite boy names for 2020:
