  1. I got his name from his dad I think it’s classy

  2. I picked the name Brandon cause his daddy wanted a son named after him plus I have three girls and I picked all of their names so to be fair i let daddy pick his name. I don’t dislike the name, we call Brandon little B when both Brandon’s are in the room so they know what Brandon we are talking about or need.

  3. My grandma names him as she her self lost a baby and named him brandon

  4. I chose the name Brandon because it sounds strong to me. Also, my 1st son is named Braxtyn and I thought it went together nicely!

  5. I named Brandon after his dad.

  6. Wanted a strong American name that was not trendy and would not go out of style. We didn’t know anyone with that name except for athletes so that was a plus since we’re hopefully raising a future MLB star!
