Last Names as First Names? | 10 Darling Baby Boy Names

1. Harrison

An English name meaning “Son of Harry”, Harrison is gorgeous as a first name and who would object to being named after Harrison Ford? It could also be shortened to Harry which is super cute.

2. Parker

Another one I adore, Parker is perfect as a first name. It is an old French name meaning “Keeper of the park”.

 

3. Davis

Not my favourite on the list because I fear it would be mistaken for David and lose some of its uniqueness. Meaning “Beloved”, it has its origins in Scottish culture.

4. Cooper

A gorgeously cute name that also translates well to adulthood, Cooper is an English name meaning “Barrel Maker”.

5. Duncan

Duncan is a quintessentially Scottish name meaning “Brown Warrior”, it is derived from the Gaelic name Donnacha. You could also drw inspiration from Duncan James or Mr Bannatyne.

6. Finley

A cute little Gaelic name meaning “Fair-Haired Warrior”, it could also be shortened to Finn!

7. Lincoln

Not the most widely used name in this country, but definitely undervalued in my opinion. The most Lincoln is obviously Honest Abe. Meaning “From the settlement by the pool”, Lincoln has Celtic origins.

8. Flynn

A variation of O’Flionn meaning “Descendant of the Flann”.

9. Logan

Best known from Wolverine in X-Men, Logan is a Scottish name meaning “Hollow”

10. Beckett

I absolutely love this one. I would also love for my child to be named after someone as prolific as Samuel Beckett. An English name meaning “Stream”.
