My first name is Brennan n't because of a random choosing of a name. On my mother's side, her Irish great-grandfather's surname was Brennan. Brennan is more than a surname or a first name, it is both.

Brennan is a last name. It also happens to be my last name. So how about people stop using a last name as a first name, why n't just name your kids a first name.

Wesley is my favorite boys name and my first son's name(9/7/2011). He has only met one other Wesley his age(while we were on vacation), which they both thought was cool. He loves that his name is unique, he's a senior and has never had a Wes or Wesley in his class. He really liked Harry Potter growing up and hated being teased as Weasley. Otherwise, he likes to go by Wes. He doesn't mind if people call him wezley, but it drives me nuts and I correct everybody!
