Picking a baby name is one of the biggest commitments parents will make in their lives. It is a big deal to have to choose the name that will be attached to your child for the rest of his or her life. Some people want two syllable names while others want names that are super rare. We love baby boy names that have a masculine feel but also sound super sweet.
We have compiled a list of 30 boy names that are the perfect mix of masculine and plain old adorable! Some of these names are super rare while other are very common. We think this list is the perfect mix of every kind of name. It can be hard for dad and mom to settle on a name together, but the list of names below are ones that will make mom say “aww” and have dad bragging to his buddies about.
Baby name picking can cause arguments between mom and dad, for obvious reasons. Maybe dad wants a super manly name while mom wants a name that sound soft and sweet. Thankfully, we have taken care of picking names that are the best combination of both so that mom and dad can focus many of the other important things when it comes to prepping for baby.
Take a look below at 30 names that are masculine but also super adorable!
Any parent on the hunt for a super sweet and manly baby name should consider the name Hunter. According to BabyCenter, Hunter is a name that is a transferred use of an English surname for bird and catchers and hunters. If dad (or even grandpa!) is a hunter, this may be the perfect name for your family. Even if you or your family have no interest in hunting, this is still a super great name choice.
According to Babycenter, Hunter is #48 in popularity on the charts and has been in the top 100 baby names since 1993. This name sounds like a tough guys name but also sounds sweet. This is a name that is not going away anytime soon, and although it is popular, it is still a perfect name choice.
We think the name Hunter belongs to a rambunctious little boy who will then turn into a spitfire teenager and then into the man of someone’s dreams. This name is becoming a timeless name and for very good reasons. This name is one that will not disappoint the grandparents and will certainly make your friends say “why didn’t I think of that name?” We believe this name will fit any baby boy.
According to Nameberry, Wyatt means brave in war, which is a perfect meaning for a rugged and manly boys name. We love this name because it is strong and easy to pronounce.

Wyatt Preston, Wyatt Nolan, Wyatt Cole and Wyatt Andrew are some first and middle name ideas that are sure to make grandma and grandpa fall in love.

To many parents, popularity doesn’t matter, especially if the name is as cute as this! We love this name because it sounds perfect amongst your future little boy’s siblings’ names. Imagine your future little Wyatt being the little brother to your Justin or the future big brother to your future Claire or Sophia? This name is one that will go with any last name.
This name is a win-win no matter how you look at it. A future Wyatt will reach for the stars and try to be the best at whatever he puts his mind to. He will be a dedicated, loving, and motivated soul…and a mama’s boy for sure!
According to BabyCenter, the name Xander means protector of men, which is a name meaning that we are sure daddy will love. BabyCenter states that Xander is #151 in popularity. The name Xander can be a fun twist on the family name Alexander and can also be spelled, Zander.
We think this name is the perfect combination of sweet and rugged and would fit any little man!
Xander is a name that we think will belong to a little boy that will test your patience but resort to a cuddly sweetheart just before you lose your cool. Xander is a name that can go well with several middle names, such as Xander Jett, Xander Quinn or Xander Eli. We think Xander is a name that not only sound super cool but sounds a name that any parent would be super proud of.

When it comes to card games, the ace is the most wanted card in the whole deck. It is always the goal to ace those big tests, and to serve an ace in tennis. Clearly, the Ace is held in such high regard, and we think that your future Ace will be too.
Ace Dominic, Ace Ruben, Ace Holden and Ace Wyatt are some potential first and middle name combinations for this name. We love how the name Ace sounds super cool when it rolls off of the tongue. This is a name that is not normally shortened into a nickname if mom or dad do not love their kiddo’s names being shortened. We think a future Ace will live up to the name and be successful and an overall great person.
The next name on this list that is super adorable is the name Titus. There is no denying that this name is a very masculine and strong name. According to Nameberry, the name Titus means the title of honor, and is a Shakespearean as well as a New Testament name.
This is a perfect name for anyone who wants their future son to have a name with presence and masculinity. We cannot deny how although this name is perfect for a future rebel, it is also a super sweet name. We can picture a future Titus to be a sweet and loving little boy with a heart of gold.
According to BabyCenter, Titus is #452 in popularity, which is a decrease from the year prior. If you are in the market for a masculine, adorable, and not so popular name, this name could be the one. An adorable nickname for Titus could be Ty.
This strong, mythical- sounding, a historical and edgy name has many possible middle names that could pair with it. Some examples are Titus Zane, Titus Wesley, Titus Porter, Titus Gregory or even Titus Rhett.
We love the name Titus because it has a great presence when it comes out of the mouth.

This is a name that grandma, auntie, and even your best friend will approve of!

This is a name meaning that we are sure dad will love! The meaning is tough, but this name is also super cute!

The name Cohen rolls off the tongue and is a perfect mix of manly and sweet. Alternate spellings of this name are Coen, Cown, or Koen. This modern sounding name, according to Nameberry, means priest. Nameberry says that this Hebrew name is #320 in popularity. Some parents love picking baby names that go well with their other children’s names, and this is a name that will fit into any family perfectly.
Cohen is the perfect name for the little brother of an Emma or a big brother to a Kinsley and Damon.
Cohen Joseph, Cohen Silas, Cohen Miles or Cohen David are some great first and middle name options.
Cohen sounds like the name of someone who will take great leaps and bounds to be successful in work and school. We also think a Cohen will be a forever mama’s boy and will have the utmost respect for both of his parents.
If mom and dad are searching for a name that belongs to a future sweetheart, Cohen is the winner. Cohen is not a name that usually has nicknames to accompany it, which can be good for parents who do not like their kiddo’s names being shortened.
It seems that nicknames for names are becoming increasingly popular, and we totally understand why. The name Jax is one syllable and super short and sweet. We like Jax because it sounds rough but cute at the same time.
According to BabyCenter, Jax is #169 in popularity and believe it or not, has no meaning due to being a newly invented name in the U.S. According to Oh Baby! Names, this name has no etymological origin and is just a spiced up version of the name Jacks or Jackson. We think this is a perfect way to change up the family name Jackson.
We think this name will pair perfectly with the following middle names: Jax Connor, Jax Cooper, Jax Alexander, Jax Ryland, and Jax Lee. We love the name Jax because the spelling makes it look more rugged with the x at the end. If you do not love the x at the end, the spelling Jacks is still a great choice. Jax is a name for a little boy who will be a protective brother and a loyal best friend. This is a name that sounds great rolling off of the tongue and will go well with just about any last name.

This is a name that many people may not have heard of for name, but we promise you that everyone will love this name once they hear it. We love how rare this name is and how it sounds when you said it out loud.
According to Nameberry, the name Griffin means strong lord. When hearing this name, you may think of the mythological half eagle half lion creature. In mythology, the Griffin is considered the king of all creatures.

We think this is a name that will give anyone’s future son a great start in life.
The name Griffin may not be as easy as some other names to pair a middle name with, but we think Griffin Elliot, Griffin Leo, and Griffin Miles are some great options.
