  1. I like the name Braxton because it’s not Common

  2. I went through so many names. I saw Braxton and really liked it. It was different, powerful. It just stuck! Braxtyn Carter

  3. I had found the name in a baby book not long after finding out the gender of our first born. I had already had the middle name Shane picked out and I loved how they sounded together. Soon after choosing the name Braxton Shane I started learning about Braxton Hicks contractions and every time I heard it, I loved the name even more and was sure I had chosen a strong name for my amazing first born ?

  4. I went 3 weeks over due….he just refused to come out…..but that wasn’t without Braxton hicks day in and day out from 7 months on!!!!! We couldn’t agree on a name. After he was 4 days old we came up with Braxton. He seemed to respond to it. After all he heard us talk about braxton hicks for months 🙂

  5. In 2015 I had my twin boys. I wanted a set of twin names that were not used all the time. I had heard the name Braxton a few years earlier and really liked it. I have a nephew named Benjamin and one named Braden so I couldn’t use those two names with it . I then found the name Brody and loved the names together.. Braxton meaning Brocks town and being English in origin and Brody being Gaelic or Scottish and meaning a castle in Scotland or second son.

  6. My mom told me about the name when I was younger and said if she would have found it when my brother was born she would have named him that. After looking through names that was the one I liked the most! The only thing I didn’t like was when I was pregnant and I would tell people his name some people would be like ” oh like Braxton Hicks? ” but for the most part everyone really likes it and says it a strong name!
