If you are dreaming of a handsome, polo-wearing, all-American stunner of a son, here are 60 preppy boy names that will be right up your alley!
These names are mostly classic, but with some trendy modern boy name selections with the same vibe. All convey an image of status, wealth, and upper education.
And preppy boy names tend to pair perfectly with elegant girl names, as they both have an air of sophistication. It is always nice when siblings have names that are the same style without being matchy-matchy. I also love the combination of a preppy boy name with a country girl name!

Looking for names with less pomp and more of an edge? You’ll find what you’re looking for with these unique boy names that are uncommon yet cool!
Preppy names can have different styles
Notice the little princes of the UK have their names on this list (George and Louis). What could be more preppy and upper class than an actual prince?!
Other preppy boy names on the list are more of 90s throwbacks, such as Tanner, Parker, and Chad. Others are more modern names with a posh edge such as Keaton and Hudson. Preppy names can span from traditional classics to trendy inventions of today.
Are preppy names the same as “white boy names”?
Some people may associate these names with a particular demographic, but I personally don’t think any race owns an entire style of names. And remember, the person makes the name- not the other way around. (Not to mention, if you’ve ever seen The Fresh Prince, well Carlton is pretty darn preppy and not a white boy!)
