Some people believe that the right name is the first step to setting your child up for great success in life. Aside from many people's personal experience, there are concrete reasons to believe that a child's given name will help them later in life.

No baby's success will be guaranteed before its birth, but with the right name choice, you may be able to give your child a helping hand that will stick with them through their life in their emails, online activities, and documentation. Below, you'll find suggestions for famous, classical, preppy, powerful, and elegant first names for rich (baby) boys.

Why Should I Give My Baby a Rich Boy Name?

  1. Easy to remember: A memorable name might help a child stand out, such as a name that's less common than it used to be. Running into a name they've never before seen or heard can be a real hang-up for many people, so most of the names on this list will have been seen before or heard before, or they'll be pronounceable for most people.
  2. Easy to find inspiration: A rich name might help your child find inspiration in the future. This could help them build self-esteem and give them a role model to show them what's truly achievable.
  3. Gender connotations: Names can be more or less masculine or feminine. Depending on where your child grows up, you may find that more doors open to them with gender neutral first names, or with names that have heavier gender connotations.
  4. Harder to discriminate: Discrimination has been a sad truth of the world for centuries. Many steps have been taken to fight it, but depending on your personal philosophy, if you want to give your child a small head start, you can consider that many of the names on these lists offer very little information for a potential employer, business partner, or administrations officer to draw conclusions from.

Tips for Creating a Unique Name

One way that some parents try to help their child stand out is to give them a name that will surely be unique. As a word of warning, this sort of thing can easily backfire—consider that the number of children named Neveah grows each year, for instance, and remember that your child may have to spend their whole life correcting people who have trouble pronouncing or spelling an unconventional combination of letters. If a child encounters enough difficulty with their name, they may also be more likely to go by a nickname, making you wonder why you gave them something so unique in the first place! Nonetheless, if you must give your child a name that will be theirs and theirs alone, here are some ways to do it:

  1. Spell it in an unusual way: Conor, Connnor, and Conner are all less common than Connor, but just as easy to pronounce.
  2. Mix up the genders: Many names most commonly given to girls have male counterparts.
  3. Squash two names together: There are probably not a lot of boys named BillBurt, for instance.
  4. Include a middle name: Give the child a middle name that can be combined with their first name, like Jean Paul or Billy Joel. This is similar to number 3, and going by two names will also set your boy apart
