57 Basic Hot Guy Names And What They Mean

When a perfectly chiseled blonde dude with white teeth comes up to you at the bar and introduces himself as “Brad,” you’re probably thinking, “of course your name is fucking Brad.”

You can say “a rose by any other name smells just as sweet,” but we beg to differ. Something about a dude named Brad just screams “conventionally handsome,” just like the name Chad screams “date rapist.”

If you’re trying to figure out what to think of your latest Tinder match, just ask yourself, what’s in a name?
