Ever noticed how royal families use the same names over and over and over again? That’s because
they are forced to traditional baby names are popular for a reason. Particularly boy’s names.
They never get old and they never die. I think Charles said something similar about the Queen once…
And while we may forget to use them for a few years (traditional baby names for boys that is) they always come back and remind us of how fabulous there were in the first place and how they suit our gorgeous little boys.
Who knows, maybe some of royalty will rub off on them.
Albert means “noble and bright” and has risen almost 200 places since 2015. It has noble origins and is popular amongst world leaders and inventors including Prince Albert and Albert Einstein. And who wouldn’t love to shorten it to Bertie for a little baby boy?
Old English name Alfie derives from the name Alfred and is so cute for baby boys. The name Alfie was used in TV show Offspring with Jimmy and Zara choosing the name for their first baby together. In real life – what, Offspring isn’t real? – Kate Winslet chose Alfie as the middle name for son Joe.
The name Harvey means “battle worthy” and is a strong choice for baby boys, managing to shed its nerdy reputation. Also, nerds are the new “cool”…The Big Bang Theory…and boys these days can more than handle the label. When thinking “nerd” think “future multi-millionaire”.
Max. Maxie. Mad Max. The name Maximus implies strength and heroicism (thank you Disney!). Maximus means “Greatest”. Facebook mogul Mark Zuckerberg chose the name Maxima for his daughter, transforming it into a unisex name as only a social media mogul can.
Olive is Latin and means “symbol of peace”. Awww. Both Olive and Oliver have experienced a resurgence of late. Both Oliver and Olivia are in the Top 10 of most popular baby names for the past three years running.
