My son's name is Brett. He is named after George Brett, Kansas City Royals 3rd baseman. His middle name is Ryan after Nolan Ryan'the pitcher. Funny how you become your name as he loves baseball and both pitches and plays third base!!

My name is Brett, and I did appreciate being the only Brett in HS & college, and my career. I was born in 1973 and named after Brett Maverick, the character that Janes Garner played in'tV. It's a crisp fun youthful name. I was often asked if it was a nick name. In'the media recently, it was referred to as a ?Frat Boy? name. It's a good name, strong & unique enough, but n't crazy weird. Thanks Mom!

Often misspelled (Bret) and more often misunderstood or mistaken for "Brad" or "Brent" when spoken.

i was also named after brett maverick back in 1970, my middle name is wayne after john wayne... go figure guess what was watched? the only bad thing growning up with brett is you could never find it on license plates, or key chains or any other name oriented items until i was to old to want them.

Unisex name - not good for boys - they will grow up and it will be a girl's name by then like Stacy & Jody & Darcy have become! Yuck!

yes, "candace" is how my name is spelled. it is often misspelled and pronounced, always added with a 'n' at the end. over the phone most people mistaken it as "tina" ...???? this version is the most common spelling of it, but in middle school i was tired of it being said and spelled completey wrong that i decided to spell it "candis" and since then i have had no problems.

I was born in Australia in 1971 and, like several other commenters, was named after Brett Maverick. Obviously this show was also popular in Australia at that time! I'moved to the US about ten years ago and, also like other commenters, have often been frustrated that my name is heard as "Brent" or "Brad".
