These names are regal. They're gorgeous. And any one of them would make an excellent name for a baby boy. While most of the names we're familiar with tend to be of a shorter variety (all the top 10 baby boy names from 2015 were two syllables, with two exceptions), that doesn't mean looking for a longer, more formal baby name is out of the question.
