50 Marvelous Boy Names Starting With “M”

50 Marvelous Boy Names Starting With “M”

My oh my, are there some magnificent boy names starting with M out there. The humble letter M is quite a popular name starter, as evidenced by the hundreds of common first names out there like Megan, Mathew, Madison, Myra, and Michael, to name a few.

Speaking of Michael, this longtime favorite comes from the Hebrew rhetorical question, “Who is like God?” It’s also one of the most popular American boy names of all time, having held the #1 spot a whopping 44 times in the past 100 years.

However, a modern up-and-comer that’s made waves in the past ten to 15 years is Mason. Despite its humble meaning of ‘one who works with stone,’ it’s been one of the top ten most popular boy names for three years out of this past decade.

If you’re looking to go a decidedly unconventional route, try Miko. This Japanese name actually has the same meaning as Michael, but with an additional meaning of ‘beautiful child’ in Japanese. This name isn’t nearly as popular as the other two, even though it’s a refreshing twist on the tried-and-true classic Michael.
