When preparing for the arrival of your new baby boy, determining the perfect name for your son may seem a little overwhelming. A good place to start is with the top 100 boys' names. Whether you are looking for something traditional and popular or trendy and unique, eMedTV's BabyBuilder tool is a great place to begin your search for the perfect name for your baby boy.

An Introduction to the Top 100 Boys' Names

Nine months may not seem like much time to come up with the perfect name for your baby boy, especially when you start to search through the thousands of pages on the Internet and read through the baby name books that are the size of War and Peace. However, a great place to start gathering ideas is to narrow the search to the top 100 baby boy names. You can narrow this search even more by taking a look at the 100 top boys' names for a specific year or those for a specific country.
Looking at these names can be useful for a few reasons. Some people want to take a look at what's popular so they can avoid using those names, because they want something unique and uncommon for their baby boy. Others may want something that is more traditional and popular, so this list of 100 top boy names can offer them several ideas. Also, a name that was popular in 1970 may not be popular today, so searching the top 100 names for different years may help couples find names that would be uncommon in the present year.
There are many styles of baby boy names to choose from -- traditional and popular, trendy and hip, or uncommon and unique. Historically, a man's name was passed down through the generations to his firstborn son, so many traditional boys' names are quite popular. However, the trend is changing and people are looking for more unique names for their baby boy. It's up to you to decide which type of name best suits your tastes.
To make the process a little less daunting, start by looking at the top 100 boys' names and making a list -- before you know it, finding the perfect name for your precious son will be easier than you think!
