Beau: we kick off the list with a super chic and fashionable boy name that immediately bring into one’s mind the image of an extremely handsome man. French baby boy names are always hot especially when they can be associated to fashion icons like Beau Brummell, born in England in 1778 and died in France in 1840. His name is reviving two centuries later in 2014 as a long string of first class celebrities have chosen Beau as their son’s name. Emma Bunton, Jamie-Lynn Sigler, Art Garfunkel and Wendy Wilson all picked Beau as a tribute to style and charm. This gentle baby boy name has started as a nick name but SSA has been recording it consistenly in their lists since 1967, reaching #311 in the popularity baby names charts in 2012. We predict that is going to get even higher in 2014, so mom and dad you better get ready for Beau’s swag!

Breccan: baby boy names of Irish origin are always hot and parents tend to prefer them because they have strong connections with mythology. It gives them an intriguing, mystical air that is often haunting. The same goes for Breccan, a name that can be found in a number of mysterious ancient tales. Its meaning is speckled or freckled and it derives the Isle of Arran (the largest island in West Scotland) saint. In more recents time, parents have been improvising and giving cool alternative spellings in their attempt to refresh the image of this name. An example from Hollywood would be American actor Breckin Meyer, best known from his role as Josh Parker in the 2000 comedy film Road Trip (watch the official trailer on YouTube).

Day: it’s a long tradition for African parents to pick baby boy names according to the time of the day that they were born. Day is a cool suggestion for African Americans parents that have strong links with their culture, or for parents that want to have a look in alternative baby boy names with a twist. Day is a word name that is straight forward, clean and unambiguous. A no nonsense baby name like this is destined for boys who will become tough negotiators and inspirational leaders with tremendous will power.

Iker: if you are a sports fan and soccer is your thing, then you should already know this Spanish baby boy name. Thanks to one of the best goalkeepers in the world, Iker Casillas, a Real Madrid player whose current salary is at 7.5 million euros per year, this exotic name was transferred to the US and becoming one of the fastest rising baby names. It was found at #230 in the latest baby names charts but it’s a safe bet that this baby name will conquer the future, just like the football star has done while earning international trophies for both Real Madrid and the Spanish National Football team, including FIFA World Cup 2010 and UEFA Euro 2008 and 2012. Iker has out performed other cool names in terms of popularity, coming like a hurricane from the Iberian peninsula. The meaning of Iker is visitation and its origin is in fact Basque to be exact.

Levi: and from the soccer fields let’s take it to the religious grounds. Levi is a cool Hebrew name for boys that means attached or jointed. According to the Old Testament, Levi was Jacob’s son and a prominent figure in the Bible, having his own tribe called Levites (estimated around 1 million nowadays). The name will become more and more popular in 2014 as more celebrities choose Levi for their baby boy name. Musician Sheryl Crow and hot actor Matthew McConaughey were among the few stars that helped Levi shot up in the sky and jump all the way up to #55 in the charts. Successful branding by Levi Strauss might put off some parents as they wouldn’t like to associate their boy’s name with a pair of jeans, but hey what’s hotter than a well-dressed boy?

Nico: in a move that brings the old and the new into olfactory union, we present you a limited-edition of a well known name with a modern twist. Nico derives from Nicholas which means people of Victory in Greek. This cool unisex diminutive is very common in Italy and thus carries the sex appeal of Italian men that are always well dressed and charming. Nico is proving to be a major hit in the US as it’s rising as fast as an Italian Ferrari supercar. It’s has jumped 95 places in the official baby names charts of 2012 and the trend is still strong. The acnient Greek origin is super cool as it’s related to Nike (yep, with obvious links to the urban athletic international brand) the Goddess of Victory.

Soren: let’s stay in Europe a bit longer. In ancient Scandinavian stories, one will find a cool alternative of the Latin name Severus which means stern. Norwegian and Danish people invented Soren, a kind and gendle baby boy name that Americans will love! What makes it cool? First of all, Soren appears in the sci-fi mega hit The Matrix Reloaded, as the captain of the hovercraft Vigilant who died in the most heroic way. Most of The Matrix fans agree that the Wachowski Brothers were inspired by the influential Danish theologian poet Søren Kierkegaard who is considered to be the first existentialist philosopher. Baby boy names with such a cool history and origin, that’s what I’m talking about!
