Fearless baby names for boys that speak of bravery and valor
Naming a baby is a pretty big deal, and if your family tree or your old favorites aren't making their way onto your baby name list, try thinking about traits you'd love your child to have as he grows up — such as bravery or valor.
Fortunately, there are plenty of kickass baby names that mean brave. From old-timey names like Basil to modern names like Devlin, there is something for everyone in this amazing collection of baby boy names. Names with different origins highlight this list, many with Old German origins, but Gaelic and Arabic names make an appearance too. And better yet, if these names won't work for a first name, they may fit perfectly as a middle name.
