  1. Bryan is my maiden name and there are no boys to carry it on so we gave the name to our son. His middle name is also a family name on my husbands side so it feels very special to us. We initially had a hard time deciding because Bryan isn’t really a baby name but decided he will be a child/adult much longer than the baby stage. It turns out, Bryan fits him as a baby too!

  2. I named my son after his dad he passed away in june

  3. His father named him
