Baby names starting with A: The ultimate list of American names
If you’re looking for a great baby name that begins with A, we have a huge list of A names for you to check out!
Below you can find more than four thousand American baby names in alphabetical order. Every one of these names were taken from a huge data set consisting of all the names given to five or more people in the United States in any given year, starting with records from 1880 and going right up until 2017.
The A baby names listed here are for boys and girls. Given how much naming choices have changed over the years, we decided to compile all the names into a single list, regardless of gender. We have added headers to separate the names by the second letter: AA, AB, AC and so on.
All duplicates were removed, so each name is only on the list once regardless of its popularity. (That’s how we happened to find out that the name Presley made the list 119 times, starting way back in 1880.) However, you will find that there are many spelling variations of names that sound the same — these have not been merged into a single name.
You will also no doubt discover that there are also some names listed here that either seem super quirky, or like a bunch of people didn’t know how to spell.
Fun fact: There are 4058 baby names starting with A here — and that’s nearly 8 percent of the entire name collection.
