If you think of your son as a shining star, consider this name, which was pulled right out of the sky. In Greek mythology, Orion was a mighty hunter and the son of Poseidon, and he was turned into a constellation by Zeus. Today Orion is one of the most recognizable constellations in the night sky. The name has a scientific yet mysterious edge, making it a good choice if you’re practical and romantic, like 'Sex and the City' actor Chris Noth, who named his son Orion in 2008.
