Comments and insights on the name Britton: | Edit

- LOVE this for a girl!!
- April 2013: When we chose this name for our daughter (7 yr old), it sounded different enough from "Brittany" that we didn't think it would be an issue. We were wrong. It bugs her that people most often just assume her name is "Brittany", even when it's enunciated clearly.

Personal experiences with the name Britton: | Edit

Have seen it on TV and on multiple children in the past year or two. Will be using it if we have another daughter.
