3 Letter Boy Names: 66 Cool, Handsome & Unique Options

Are you looking for a gorgeous, 3 letter boy name for your son?

If you are then you’re not alone, because many parents consider it wise to choose a name that is both handsome and that easily rolls off the tongue.

Don’t get us wrong, longer names can be great.

But a longer name may be shortened by well-meaning friends, relatives or even by your son himself – and this scenario often infuriates parents who prefer their child to be called by their full name!

So choosing a boys name with 3 letters your little man can be a great way to get ahead of the game, enabling parents to decide on a name that is more likely to be used in its entirety as intended.

In addition, a shorter first name can be a great option if you have a long surname, or even if you just prefer how shorter names sound.

From strong and handsome to cool and unique, here are 66 of the best three letter boy names to choose from.

Tips For Choosing The Perfect 3 Letter Boy Name

We hope you found the list above to be useful, inspiring and thought-provoking.

If you are really struggling to come up with a name you particularly like, here are some additional tips and advice:

  1. Many parents find the naming process naturally takes some time, so do not feel bad if you are having difficulty making a decision.
  2. A helpful starting point is to create a list of all the names you like – keep this list as wide as you like for now.
  3. Once this list is created, it’s time to eliminate some names based on whether there are others on the list that you prefer. Try to be as ruthless as you can, narrowing down to your top 3-5 names if possible.
  4. Say the potential name and your child’s surname out loud to get a feel for how they sound and gel together.
  5. Remember to check that the initials of the names don’t spell anything rude!
  6. Sometimes you may feel like you are not making any progress, in which case it’s wise to take a break for a several days and then revisit again when your mind is more fresh.
  7. Remember there’s no rule to say you have to decide on your baby’s name before they are born. So if you have several potential options, why not wait until you meet your little one, because seeing them in person may help you decide which of the names on your shortlist suits them the best.
