10 Awesome Baby Boy Names Inspired By Musicians
(John) The Candle in the Wind and Rocket Man singer is a favourite with most, young or old and although his real name is Reginald Dwight, I think he was on to a winner when he picked this stage name, meaning God’s Fighter.
(Presley) One of the most iconic figures of all time, Elvis released an incredible 70+ albums during his career and almost single handedly changed music forever. Not a bad legacy to name your baby after!
(Armstrong) Definitely gathering momentum, the name Louis is probably best known by the younger generation from the One Direction singer and was recently chosen by Pippa O’Connor for her son. Louis Armstrong was the genius behind several hits including What a Wonderful World.
(Barker) The name Travis has French origins meaning To Cross. Barker is best known as the drummer from Blink 182.
(Cobain) A Turkish name meaning Wolf. Cobain was essentially a tragic genius. A musical prodigy leading Nirvana, the band that started the grunge rock movement, Kurt died tragically young.
(Mathers) A Scottish name meaning love of horses, Marshall is not overly popular but a good choice if you are looking for something a little different. Eminem is renowned as one of the only Caucasian Rappers to ever succeed in the industry.
(Timberlake) Justin is a Latin name meaning righteous. JT himself is an icon of modern Pop Culture with hit after hit such as Rock Your Body and Cry Me a River, not to mention the success he had as a member of Sync.
(Rose) Axl means Father of Peace and is perfect if you want something with a little bit of edge. What better name for your little rocker than that of the frontman from Guns’N’Roses?
(Hendrix) Although Jimi is generally the spelling used for girls, Jimi Hendrix pulled it off nicely and was a defining figure in music over the last number of decades.
