Boys’ Names Then, Now, and Next: a Fashion Alphabet

August 2, 2022 Namerology 2 Comments

See the past, present and future of boys’ names from A to Z

Harold, Hunter, Hendrix


A is for Andrew, B is for Brian, C is for Christopher? Not anymore. The baby name alphabet has changed, and more fashion movement is on the horizon.

To get you ready for the new ABCs of style, we’ve collected a “Then, Now, Next” alphabet of boys’ names. Read across to follow an initial through time: first the familiar names of previous generations (Andrew), then the typical names of today (Asher), and finally some fast-rising names that could point to what lies ahead (Atticus). Or read down within a column to immerse yourself in the sound and style of an era.

    My sons are 4, 18 months and 3 months and all of them have names in the “past” column. They have names I definitely didn’t dream about, but they fit them perfectly.
