Final Thoughts on Space Names for Boys

First, a quick joke:

How do you get a baby astronaut to go to sleep?

Rocket.

Ha!

Whether you’re an avid space explorer or you just want to infuse a little extraterrestrial flair into your baby’s moniker, there are infinite options for baby names that are out of this world.

Hopefully, you’ve found a space-inspired name that’s worthy of the center of your universe.

If you haven’t decided on the perfect name, or if you’re not 100% sure you want a space name for your baby boy, here are some other lists to check out:

Other places to look for space-related baby names

If this mega list of space names for babies didn’t quite have what you were looking for, there are tons of other places to find ideas.

Fair warning, though: Most of the other celestial names you’ll find will be a bit more “out there.”

Here are some other ways to find space names:

1) Greek and Roman mythology

So many celestial objects are named after Greek and Roman gods and goddesses. It’s a gold mine of space names, particularly if you tend to gravitate towards unusual baby names.

2) Science fiction movies and shows

Start with some of the most popular ones like Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, The Mandalorian, A Space Odyssey, Apollo 13, and so on!

Check out the names of the characters, the locations, the spaceships, and even the aliens!

Sites like IMDB are a great resource for tracking down lesser-known movies and shows with space-related names.

3) Astronauts and scientists

Another great way to find space-related baby names is to look up the names of astronauts and scientists who have made important contributions in the field of space exploration. There are tons of lists online with all the names listed alphabetically.

Think Sagan, Gallileo, Copernicus, Einstein, and Hawking.

4) Space objects and phenomena

Think asteroids, comets, nebulas, quasars, eclipses, constellations, planets, and moons.

Some of these words themselves make for cute first or middle names.

Or you can use the names of specific ones like Saturn (obviously a planet), Eros (an asteroid), Cassiopeia (a constellation), or like I joked at the beginning of this article, Andromeda (a galaxy).

5) Other languages

Don’t feel limited to English words! Finding a great space-related baby name can be as simple as looking up words like star, space, moon, and planet in a foreign language dictionary. Google works for this too, of course.

As you can see, it’s pretty easy to find space-related baby names. The hardest part might be narrowing down your list!
