My husband and I named our little baby boy, Braden and I can't be happier with the choice. We decided to n't use the "y", because it felt a little to feminine for a boy. I have n't yet met anyone else with the'same name, but I know they're out there and that's ok with us!

My name is Braden, and it can often be pronounced wrong. People tend to read it and pronounce my name as "Brad-n." But as it is becoming somewhat more common, people are getting used to it.

I'm the only person I know with this name. I like it, but people always mistake it for Brandon.

11/21/2023 00:32:44

This is my son's name. I named him after'someone, now deceased, whom I'd always thought very highly of. I like the name because its strong, classic, and staightforward, in addition'to having a deep personal association for me.

I named my son Braden Alexander in 2008...little did I know how popular it would become. Yes, everyone says Brandon or Brady. My son loves his name. Everyone else seems to love it. And I love it.

Braden is my oldest son's name. I knew people with the last name of Braden but never a first name until i saw it in'the birth announcements in'the local newspaper when i was in high school. I fell in love with it as a first name. It is unique and masculine but n't too out there. My Braden is graduating this year and over the years we have ran into othe's with that name, n't many but a few. I am still in love with his name!

My 7 year old sons name is Braden, I still think the name is unique and love it. Every time we tell someone his name is Braden, they respond "Oh, Brandon, what a nice name". It's kind of funny. I haden't met anyone who had a child named Braden until 2017 - 2 people I worked with named their son Braden - both spelled Brayden. So the'spelling "Braden" is still unique in my part of the world anyways. I love the name - and am sure he will find that's It's quite common as he grows up. Our next son will be called "Bourne" an'ther great name - even more unique - at least for now!!

I named my son Braden in 2018 after the Braden River in Bradenton Florida. My husband and I always travel through that way and we decided to name our first boy that because we love that area. Before then, I had never heard the name. With the recent Target commercial with all the brown lunch bags saying Braden but spelled many different ways, I thought I should look up its popularity. I have only run into a few Braden's. So I thought it was sort of weird that Target picked that name appear on'the lunch bags. In 2017 it was the 133 most popular name. I love the name. I had no idea it was popular. I guess the way it is spelled is still unique. Most people I run into are spelled with a y.

My 20 year old son is a "Braden." But known as "Brady" all his life. No one ever uses his last name. Coaches and college professors all just call him "Brady." he'says It's kinda like "Pele" or "Che." He loves both "Brady" and "Braden." he'says people love "Brady" and are impressed by "Braden" when'they learn its his formal name. i've always called him just "Brade."

I was given "Braden" as a middle name after my Grandfather in Pennsylvania. He was the first generation born in'the US from an Irish father. I don't know why he had that name. My parents shortened it to "Brady" as a nickname and I liked it because it was different and always stuck out. I was born in 1972.

08/19/2022 02:38:42

Eric Braden is my name, and when'tHEY mispronounce it Brady, Brandon, or an'thing else it just shows how much they are listening, and also their IQ if they are actually reading it off a list. To many teache's did that. Sorry to the teache's, but get it RIGHT.

06/30/2022 18:38:06

I named my son Braeden Riley. We are of Irish decent and so the "ae" is Irish/Gaelic. I am so proud of this name as I haven't found anyone else with it, that's the best part, but at the'same time it is a very manly stately name
