9 Bad Boy Biker Baby Names

Biker baby names for bad boys run the gamut from classics like like to a little crazy.. Spike or Butch, anyone? If you're hoping you get a future Hell's Angel, try one of these biker baby names on for size!

1. Wyatt

MEANING: This cool tough guy name comes from an Old English name that frankly, we are really glad is not in favor anymore: Wigheard. Yup. Wig meant "battle" and heard meant "brave" - so being a Wyatt basically means you are a warrior... ROAD warrior, that is!

Famous Bad-Boy Wyatts:

  • Wyatt Earp
  • Wyatt (Peter Fonda's character in Easy Rider)

2. Billy

MEANING: Billy is short for William/an old German name Willahelm - "wil" literally means will, and "helm" means helmet or protection, so here we have another warrior style name for bad babies!

Famous Bad-Boy Billys:

  • Billy the Kid
  • Billy (Dennis Hopper's character in Easy Rider)
Wyatt and Billy in Easy Rider

3. Steve

MEANING: A shortened form of Steven/Stephen, which comes from a Greek name which means "crown." Well, name your little guy Steve and he just might end up being King of the Road!

Famous Bad-Boy Steves:

  • Steve McQueen (actor)
  • Steve-O (Jackass star)
  • Stone Cold Steve Austin (pro wrestler)
  • Steve Jobs & Steve Wozniak (bad-boy founders of Apple!)
Steve McQueen

4. Rebel

MEANING: One who resists an established authority. Watch out with this name, as a parent YOU are the established authority!

Famous Bad-Girl Rebels:

  • Rebel Wilson (actress)

5. Rider/Ryder

MEANING: Knight, or mounted warrior. This is LITERALLY a great biker name.

Famous Bad-Boy Riders:

  • Ryder Strong
  • Ryder (Kate Hudson's son)

6. Jax

MEANING: Just a cool way to shorten Jackson, which means son of Jack. Keep it simple.

Famous Bad-Boy Jaxes:

  • Jackson "Jax" Teller (Sons of Anarchy)

7. Ace

MEANING: An English word, Ace means 'highest rank,' you know, like in cards! We think a baby named Ace will surely grow up to be the leader of the pack.

Famous Bad-Boy Aces:

  • Ace Frehley (Kiss)

8. Paul

MEANING: Comes from the Roman name "Paulus," which means small/humble. We can't think of any small Pauls right now, but some of the coolest dudes ever share this classic name - so there you go!

Famous Bad-Boy Pauls:

  • Paulie Teutul Sr. (Orange County Choppers)
  • Paulie Teutul Jr. (Orange County Choppers)
  • Paul Newman
  • Paul McCartney
  • Paul Revere
  • Paul Stanley (Kiss)

Paul Teutul Sr. of OCC


MEANING: Axel is a Medieval Danish form of the name Absalom, which is originally Hebrew and means "my father is peace." Also, you can't ride a motorcycle without an axle, so there you have it! (Got a biker babe? The feminine form Axelle is super cool!)

Famous Bad-Boy Axels:

  • Axl Rose (Guns & Roses)
  • Axl Jack (Fergie & Josh Duhamel's son)

  1. I think my grandson's name - ZEKE - is a bad boy sounding name. Even though he's very sweet!
