-kun is used at the end of boys' names to express familiarity or endearment. It's somewhat similar to the way we turn "Rick" into "Ricky" in English.

What does kun at the end of a name mean in Japanese?

"Kun" is a diminuitive. That is, it asserts a degree of familiarity, or in other cases, social superiority. A teacher may refer to his students, or a boss to those who work under him, with "kun." Likewise, it may be used among friends. It is not only used for males, just as 'chan' is not only used for females. Kun is not something you would attach to the name of your social superiors.
