Selecting the perfect name for your baby boy is an important decision. You want a name that sounds great but also connects to who he is on a deeper level. Looking to the stars through astrology can provide that meaningful inspiration.
In this post, we’ll learn how to determine your son’s natal chart and explore astrological boy names related to zodiac signs, planets, mythology, and more. With so many factors to weigh, astrology acts as a cosmic guide to choosing a name he was simply meant to have.
Determine His Natal Chart
To tap into astrology for naming, you first need to understand your baby’s astrological blueprint. His natal chart maps out the position of the planets at the exact moment he was born.
You’ll need his:
- Date of birth
- Exact time of birth
- Place of birth
Enter this data into a natal chart calculator to generate his chart. This will reveal his zodiac sign placements, ascendant, moon sign, and other insights key for aligning his name.

Planet, God and Mythology Names
In astrology, planets represent different energies that can be channeled into a name. God and mythological names also relate back to astrological influences.
Planet name options include:
- Apollo (sun god)
- Ares (God of war, Mars)
- Atlas (Jupiter’s moon)
- Mercury (messenger god)
- Zeus (supreme god, Jupiter)
Names of gods, myths and heroes linked to astrological planets:
- Helios (sun titan)
- Oberon (moon king)
- Oceanus (Titan of the sea, Neptune)
- Hermes (messenger god, Mercury)
- Vulcan (metalworking god, Venus)
Moon Sign Names
Look to your baby’s moon sign for naming themes that speak to his inner emotional world and needs.
For a Taurus moon, nature names like Cedar, Heath and Zale reflect the earthy moon.
A watery Pisces moon suits imaginative names like Poet, Reverie or Shore.
Ascendant Sign Names
The ascendant describes our outer self. Picking a name aligned with your son’s rising sign fits how he’ll present himself.
A Leo ascendant suggests he’ll have a bold persona – names like Apollo, Leon and Zephyr suit this.
For a Libra ascendant, charming names like Bennett, Hugo and Orlando reflect his sociable side.
Connect the Chart
For the fullest meaning, connect the patterns across your son’s natal chart.
A Capricorn Sun and Taurus Moon need an earthy yet serious name like Abram, Theodore or Zane.
Or maybe his Cancer Sun and Pisces Moon call for a watery name like Kai, Ocean or Jonah.
Let his chart combinations point you to the perfect astrological name.
Try It Out
Once you have astrological name contenders, be sure to test them thoroughly before deciding.
Say the name aloud, envision yelling it at his future graduation, and check how it flows with your last name.
Make sure it feels right as you get familiar with it. This name will become his destiny.
Navigate with the Stars
Naming a child leaves a significant footprint on their destiny. Let the ancient wisdom of astrology guide you to a name that aligns with the person your boy will become.
The stars know who he is. Whether it’s a fiery Felix, gentle Kai, or heroic Zephyr, choose a name that reflects the cosmic map within him.
Trust in astrology to bestow your son with a name that empowers him to shine as his true self. The universe supports you on this journey.
