Boy Names related to Fire

Fire names for baby boys, with 47 entries. Fire names for boys were a popular choice a couple of decades ago, especially with the ubiquitous Kenneth, a Scottish name which means born of fire. A more recent and contemporary Celtic name, Aidan, meaning little fire has emerged a popular choice. Fire names are energetic, intense and quite fitting for boys who are spirited and gutsy. Interestingly, because of the purifying nature of fire and its role in refining gold, silver and precious stones, there is a deeper connotation to fire names that allude to a purity of soul and motives, as found in the Irish name Conley which means purifying fire.
