Bird Names For Boys:
Robin originated as a nickname for Robert, but became a top 100 name for girls in the 60s. But we still think this name suits guys more, probably because of its association with Robin Williams.
This moniker is inspired by the majestic hunting bird, hawk. When the name was coined for babies, hunting was considered an aristocratic sport. Hawk is heard more as a surname than a first name.
Crane is the name for the genus of large birds with long necks and legs. Its literal meaning is ‘to extend one’s neck’. For the nickname, you can opt for Cray.
Merle comes from the surname Muriel, but it is also an Old French word merula for blackbird. This name was favored hugely in the years the 1910s and 1920s.

Here’s an active bird baby boy name for you. It is inspired by the fastest flying bird swift, which boasts of over a 100 species. We think it would make an intriguing middle name.
Byrd is a variation of the straightforward name, Bird. It was also the name of the teenage son in the television show “Huff”. Sargent James Byrd, the anthropomorphic penguin from game “Spyro the Dragon”, is also a namesake.
Falcon would make a powerful and sleek bird name for your baby boy. It’s appropriate for a boy, but we think it would work for a girl, too! Falcon Heene, fondly known as the “balloon boy” would be its namesake.
This moniker conjures images of salty and windswept air of the beach. As most of you must be knowing, this name is inspired by the seagull. As a name, Gull has Celtic origins and means ‘long-winged swimming birds’.
Eagle is a soaring name with patriotic symbolism. We do not have a real life namesake of this name, but in “Old St. Paul’s”, a novel by W. H. Ainsworth, Solomon Eagle was a character. It’s also the name of a rock band.
The meaning of Finch is ‘to swindle’. But its similarity with pinch would be a turnoff for some parents. Did you know, in the medieval times, Finch was believed to be a foolish bird?
Chelidon, the Greek name for swallow, (the bird) would make a different name for your son. In the Greek mythology, Chelidon was the loving sister to Philomela.
Corvus, the Latin word for ‘crow’ could also make a potential baby name.
Here’s another baby name inspired by the crow. We bet no one can even guess that it’s inspired by our black feathered friend. It’s also the name of the castle where the Holy Grail is believed to be hiding.
