You could give your child a popular baby name like Jacob or Isabella, but these sporty baby names are much more fun and unique! Even if your child ends up watching sports more than playing sports -- he or she will still have a cool name.
Be inspired by some of the best athletes in the world with our list of famous athletes with cool names. While you may not want to name your son Tiger or your daughter Picabo, use these names as inspiration when searching for a name. For instance, instead of the name Tiger, consider animal-inspired names like Falcon or Jag (Jaguar). Some of the last names would make cool first names like Elway or Blair. Check out more of our favorite athletes for inspiration.
When searching for the perfect sporty baby boy name, consider All-American names, such as Tom Brady or Bo Jackson. Names that have the same first letter as the last name, such as Tim Tebow, also have a cool sound perfect for your budding sports star. Check out more sporty boy names below:
One more tip: Initial names, such as JP or MJ also have a cool sporty sound to them. Many parents will use the first letter in their child's first and middle name for the initials. For instance, Christopher John becomes CJ.
Shortening a traditional girl name, such as Alex from Alexandria or Roxy from Roxanne, will instantly give your girl name a more sporty sound. All-American girl names, such as Lisa or Jennifer, would also make a great sporty name, especially if your last name starts with that same letter (even though most married women eventually change their last names).
