There’s no better place to start when naming baby than the very first letter of the alphabet. Names starting with the letter A are abundant and quite frankly awesome, and boy do we have a mega list for you.

First on the class roll call, you have plenty of choice when it comes to A. While there’s a huge array of classics, like Alex and Albert, there are also plenty that feature on the most popular lists, including Archie and Aiden. But when we asked our huge social community to tell us their favourite A boy names, they came up with some of the most unique and surprising monikers we’ve ever heard.

So hop on the alphabet train, but don’t get too comfy, because the first stop is coming right up.

A boy names with a theme

If you’re stuck for inspiration, names with a theme are a great place to start. And the letter A is bursting with options that are both conservative and crazy-cool.

Some are nature inspired without being too obvious, others are place names that conjure up memories and others are after famous icons:

Unique A names for boys

Don’t mind spelling it out? You’re spoilt for choice with the letter A, give your son a unique name that’ll turn heads with names that don’t run rampant in the playground:

  • Aaryav
  • Amryn
  • Atreyu
  • Ayrton
  • Aemon
  • Anakin
  • Arllen
  • Aage
  • Adeleke
  • Aaro

Alternative spellings for boy A names

Mix A names up with alternative spellings – the first letter of the alphabet need not be common:

  • Adam: Adem, Adom, Addom, Adim
  • Adrian: Adriean, Adrien, Adrion, Adrionne, Adryan, Adryn, Adryon
  • Alastair: Alasdair, Alastair, Alastaire, Alasteir, Alaster, Alastor, Allaster

Characters starting with A

They’re the characters we know and love, and what better a place to get name inspiration than the pages of a book or the flicker of the screen:

  • Atticus: this uber cool name is best known as the main character from To Kill A Mockingbird (which by the way brings the literary goods with other winners like Finch and Scout)
  • Akeem: those that have watched the movie Coming To America will know the main character Akeem, who is both lovable and funny.
  • Agustín: from Disney’s Encanto, Agustín Madrigal is an amusing character with a very stately name,
  • Ace: from the iconic Ace Ventura, this short, sharp name are suited to families that like a little fun.
  • Anakin: Star Wars devotees might want to consider the moniker Anakin which means ‘warrior.’
  • Aslan: The mythical world of Narnia brings forth the mighty lion Aslan – you can’t give your son this name without bestowing a little star power in the process.
