Congratulations, it’s a b-b-b-boy! Celebrate by giving him a name that starts with a B.

B-names haven’t yet made it to the Social Security Administration’s “Top 5 Names” list, which spans from 1923 to 2022, but a name like Robert — often shortened to “Bob” — can be found there.

Searching for a classic name? There’s Bertrand, Bronte and Butler. For something short and zippy, there’s Beal, Blaze and Bing. Meanwhile, “B” names with a French edge include Benoît, Bastien and Baptiste.

These celebrities like the letter B for their baby boys:

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green's son is Bodhi, Alicia Silverstone and Kate Winslet both named their sons Bear,  Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Justin Mikita’s son is Beckett, Andy Cohen’s son is Benjamin and Michael Phelps and Nicole Johnson’s sons are Boomer and Beckett.

Some of our favorite “B” names are unexpected. Sure, there’s Bill, Bobby and Brooks, but some options typically used for surnames — Beckham, Baxter, Banks and Bridges — make for striking first names.
