Have you had it with short baby names? These boy names are large and in charge, and at four syllables each, they're fancy enough for any baby.

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.

And sure, there are names here you probably recognize — Alexander is one, and Nathaniel is another. Both are traditional names that stretch back centuries, and both can be broken up into nicknames quite easily. That goes for quite a few of the rest of these names too. Many of these names have Italian or Spanish origins, and some are biblical in nature. But they all pretty much rock.

Pair a long, unique name like this with a short, sweet middle name for the best combo, and get busy picking an elegant name from this baby name list.
