Cool Baby Names - Hollywood Baby Names!
is simply not enough to give your baby a name that can be easily spelled.
Some of us are looking for a name that is classic, yet unusual; sophisticated,
yet sweet. BabyZone.com regularly issues a list of what it considers to
be the coolest baby names. While obviously baby names are a matter of
individual preference, there is something about names that have been deemed
as cool that can give them universal appeal.
Cool Boy Names
The list of cool boy names also mixes ethnicity and meaning to create a truly diversified list. The list also includes both the traditional and the trendy. For instance, there's Dominic, which is Latin for "of the Lord." Gannon is Irish for "fair-skinned," while Jace is an American derivative of Jason. Kendi is African for "loved one"; Colin is Irish for a "child" or a "cub." Colin can also serve as a nickname for Nicholas. Maddox means "son of Maddock" in Welsh; Carson is Scottish for "son of Carr." Savion is a contemporary name which might have been derived from Xavier, while Wyatt is English for "Guide." Ty is a French word meaning "hot-tempered" or "firebrand." As you can see, the list of cool boys' names run the gamut, from the classic to the outrageous.

A Word of Caution
At this point, it is important to insert a word of caution. Today's cool baby name could be tomorrow's ugly moniker. Baby names tend to run in cycles-Jennifer might be considered popular one year, then passé the next. In today's kindergarten classes, you might find a number of Katies, but very few Helens. You have to think about how you'll feel about the name twenty years from now. Even more importantly, how will your children view the name two decades hence?
