Chic boy names

Expecting a baby is a very exciting time. During this period, parents are busy with all kinds of things. There is also a lot of effort to find a suitable name. However, a large number of parents have difficulty finding the perfect name for their child. If you are expecting a boy and like fancy names, this article may be useful to you.

Relationship between name and social class

In fact, a name is nothing more than a few letters. Yet there are a number of studies that confirm that a first name is indeed important. For example, if someone has a vulgar name, we get a negative image of that person. Parents often choose a name for their child that is representative of their social environment.
For example, people from a low social class often give their sons an English or American name, such as Wesley, Kevin or Jeremy. Names that originate in Southern European countries are also popular among parents with a low income. Names like Ricardo, Giovanni and Cristiano fall into this category.
The name choices of middle-income earners are less typical. These parents often go for names from the top 50, such as Daan, Sem and Luuk. Scandinavian names are also popular in this social class. Sven, Björn and Sverre are examples of this.
Parents from higher social classes often prefer fancy names. Fancy names are also called elite names, cock names or hockey names. These names usually consist of several syllables. Most of the chic boys’ names come from French.

Really chic?

Are the above boy names indeed chic as they are supposed to be? By examining the names of men from different royal families, it can be confirmed that these boys’ names are indeed found in the higher circles of society. We can think of Prince Constantijn of the Netherlands (1969), Prince Maurits of Orange-Nassau (1968), Prince Floris of Orange-Nassau (1975) and Prince Nicolas of Belgium (2005).
Even when we look at the names of high-profile men who have since died, we see the names from the table above. Prince Alexander of Belgium (1942-2009), King Baudouin I of Belgium (1930-1993), King Leopold III of Belgium (1901-1983) and Archduke Reinier of Austria (1827-1913) are examples of this.
