Of all the variables to choose from on your hunt for the perfect baby name — length, meaning, namesakes, and so much more — sometimes a single letter can make all the difference. Some parents have a natural fondness for a certain letter, intentionally naming all of their kids names beginning with the same sound. Others might switch it up for each child, but know what beginning letter they're looking for in a name right from the start. If "B" is that letter for you, you're in luck. There are so many baby names that begin with "B" that you'll probably have a hard time sorting through them all.
"B" names have a certain strength to them. The consonant at the beginning is hard to ignore, giving the name instant memorability and a sound that is easily noticed. Some of them are short and sweet, while others are longer and elegant. Some make perfect gender-neutral names, while others sound very masculine or feminine. If you have your heart set on the letter "B", you can always change up the spelling or give a complimentary middle name to offset the name's strength even more.
Regardless of which name you choose your baby "B" is sure to have a name that will stand out from the rest.
