Comments and insights on the name Canyon: | Edit

I have a 5 year old son called Canyon. I love it because it's different and lots of people comment on it. It really suits him, too, as he has long hair and blue eyes. I got the name off the map of the world and went to the races and a horse was running called Red Canyon. I didn't tell anybody for 5 years my chosen name. He doesn't have a middle name just the letter K, after my name. His full name is Canyon K. Bray. How wonderful, well I think so.

Personal experiences with the name Canyon: | Edit

Joni Mitchell's 3rd ablbum Ladies of the Canyon made me think of what a fantastic name Canyon would be for a child. I think it leans toward masculine but would fit a boy or a girl. This is a truly timeless name.

Nicknames for Canyon: | Edit

I have never shortened his name and don't let others; he may want to when he's older and that's his choice.
