197 Preppy Boy Names

by | Dec 3, 2020

Picking out a name for your sweet little boy can seem like a very tough decision, especially because they’ll have it for their entire life!

If you’ve been going through tons of baby names lately and coming up stumped, you can hopefully find the perfect preppy boy names right here.

These preppy boy names can be used as first names of course, but also would make great middle names. Mix and match them as first and middle names to find the perfect fit!

These preppy boy names are mostly popular names, but some may still be unique. Going with one of these preppy boy names is perfect because they usually fit well with most middle and last names, whether they’re long or short.

Your little boy will exude confidence and sophistication with these cool or classic names.

Why choose a preppy baby boy name?

Choosing a strong and classic preppy name for a boy is a great decision. A preppy boy can be deemed as educated and smart, have a positive attitude, and is well-liked. They typically come across as approachable and assertive, which are great characteristics for future leaders. 

A preppy name is a bit subjective, but I wanted to give you a large list to decide on your own. To me, these names are all super preppy or can be made preppy depending on your lifestyle.

P.S. Start Your Registry Now!

Now before you start picking names and designing the nursery, don’t forget to set up a baby registry! Get started early because you may hear about a lot of essential baby items sooner than you think. At least then you’ll have a place to save them on a list so you can remember what you need later.

Tips for choosing a name

Here are some questions I asked myself when picking boy first and middle names for my children. You can rank them in order of priority for your family because not all of them will be as important as others.

  • Do you want to use a family name or initial?
  • Does it have a nice meaning to it?
  • Does it have meaning to us or our family?
  • Are there nicknames for this name that we want to use or avoid?
  • Is it too popular?
  • Is it too unique?
  • Does the name sound well with your last name?
  • Are there any negative associations you have with it?
  • What will his initials be?
  • What will that name sound like when they’re an adult or professional?

The biggest advice is to ignore what others think or have to say about names you are considering or choose. It’s such a personal decision for you and your family so don’t let any other outside influencers change your mind.

Once you have it narrowed down to 2-4 first and middle names, I suggest picking one name per week during your pregnancy, and referring to your baby as that name.

Every time you talk about “the baby,” call him by that name. When you refer to his nursery or his movements in your belly, call him by that name.

At the end of that week, change it to another name. Do this for several weeks with your top choices to see which name sticks and feels the most genuine to you. Once you start actually referring to your baby as this name, you will feel even more of a connection to him.

PS. Start your registry!!

Before you even get started with names, make sure you start a baby registry. You’ll find and hear about many newborn essentials while you’re pregnant and you want to be able to quickly add or save them to your wish list/registry so you don’t forget!

The Amazon Baby Registry is clearly the best option. You get some free items in a welcome box, free shipping, 10-15% off all the remaining items in your registry, and it’s Amazon- so you’re literally going to buy everything from there anyway!

Plus, it’s free, so there’s really no point NOT to do it.  Start it up here now!
