165 Hot & Sexy Boy Names to Get Hearts Fluttering

Smoldering looks alone won’t cut it, so pick among these sexy male names for your little prince.

Our boys are beautiful, that’s a fact, but some are more attractive than others. So, if your prince has what it takes to front the new Dolce and Gabbana ad, you’d better give him a hot name to match.

Traditional or more common names, such as Kevin or Timothy, usually don’t sound super sexy (sorry, Kevin and Timothy!). He needs a name like Sebastian or Antonio if he’s to make it at all.
