The 6 Luckiest Boy Names

1. Leo

Leo is the astrological sign that's ruled by the sun—and it also makes a lucky name for a baby boy.

"The sun represents strength, leadership, and abundance, and boys named Leo are believed to carry the qualities of confidence, creativity, and luck," says Matthias Dettmann, a tarot reader and astrologer. "They often have a charismatic personality and a natural ability to shine in various areas of life."

In many ways, they'll be similar to those who are born in Leo, so you get bonus points if your son is a Leo named Leo.

2. Asher

This Hebrew name translates to "happy and blessed," but its astronomical significance goes deeper than that.

"The name resonates with an energy frequency akin to a north star which guides the bearer toward abundant luck and joy in life," explains Tiffany McGee, professional astrologer and founder of Nomadrs.

There's also a numerology association. "The lucky number for Asher is six, which is considered the number of harmony, balance, and sincerity that fosters traits like responsibility, care, and love, aiding in the holistic development of the individual," says McGee. If your son can master those things, he'll no doubt attract luck.
