Top 25 Boy Names of 2013 (So Far)

Hot List 84

top boy namesWhen it comes to boys' names, one of the most popular trends has been to give traditional boy names to girls (think Jessica Simpson's Maxwell and Charlie Sheen's Sam). But a lot of popular boys' names sound like they'd do just as well on a girl. Nameberry has released the most popular boys' names that people are looking at, considering, pondering, and hoping like hell won't explode to become every single boy's name after you pick it! The most checked out boy's name of 2013 so far is one that has made a comeback after falling in popularity last year.

And that name is ...


Asher was the most looked at name in 2011, but then lost out to Finn in 2012. But he's back with a vengeance. Asher means "fortunate, blessed, happy one." Its popularity is pretty obvious; it's one of those Old Testament names that completely disappeared from the Social Security baby name list -- in this case for 100 years -- so people must have thought it was safe to begin naming their kids Asher again. In the 1990s it staged a comeback.

Finn is number two. In terms of celebrity baby names, Julia Roberts chose this for her little one. Declan is number three. And Django number four -- no doubt thanks to the movie Django Unchained. Wonder how many people will actually name their kid that?! Certainly it would be unique.

New to the list and moving up quickly are Flynn, August, and Gray. Orlando Bloom and model Miranda Kerr named their baby boy Flynn. Gray is probably popular due to Fifty Shades. August? Hey, it's summer!

Here's the top 25 out of 100:

1.  Asher

2.  Finn

3.  Declan

4.  Django

5.  James

6.  Oliver

7.  Henry
