Looking for some simple and slick names? The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes have got you covered.
For certain types of families, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is the greatest gift Hollywood has ever produced. Not only are there over twenty films in the franchise, but this comic book world come to life also encompasses a variety of styles, meaning there’s (usually) something for everyone.
If you’re a big Marvel family, or you sense your kid might be, here are some great, and simple baby names inspired by the Avengers.

Another great gender-neutral name, “Sam” is also the name of our incumbent Captain America; Sam Wilson played brilliantly by Anthony Mackie.
Look, this isn’t exactly an MCU-inspired name, but rather, one that comes from Norse mythology. Still, Thor feels like an awesome name for a baby, and it really, works with any gender!
Okay, so we’re cheating a bit here. T’Challa, AKA Black Panther, is a member of the Avengers. But, we think naming your kid “T’Challa,” might be a bit ostentatious. But the name Chadwick is lovely, but a wonderful tribute to the real Black Panther himself; the late Chadwick Boseman.
An old-fashioned name that has been given a magical makeover thanks to Marvel. In the comics, “Wanda” was just the alter-ego of the Scarlet Witch. But, the MCU made Wanda her true name, even if that was a little bit of an accident.
