25. Arlo (ARE-low)
Arlo is rapidly rising in popularity for both girls and boys which is why it made Nameberry’s list of top boy names to watch for. It’s of Spanish origin and is considered a place name, literary name, and short form for the Italian name, Carlo.
Arlo was a favorite for parents in the first half of the twentieth century, but is now experiencing a major revival, particularly in the UK and New Zealand. Its rise in popularity in the U.S. during the past decade has been a surprise, but one that was partially inspired by the character Arlo Givens on TV’s Justified.
