This has got to be the Most Popular Name for 2009-2010! It seems like everyone having a boy is naming him Brayden. It was Hunter not long back but Brayden has taken over!
This is my sons name and I love it so much. It has been my favorite for a while and I'm so happy to give my son such a great name.
I had actually never heard of the name Brayden before but when I got pregnant in 1992 and my son was born in 1993, I came up with the name by combining the names of my favorite Christian artist "Bryan Duncan" and the names of his 2 sons "Brandon" and Devin" and I came up with "Brayden" and his middle name was "Keith" after his dad's first name. I love the name and think it's beautiful yet very much handsome and masculine as well. I felt like a trend setter when I named my Brayden that! He is 24 years old now!
