  1. Byron is the name of my first son and he was named after his dad who was also named after his dad. I really like that this name has a sort of legacy attached to it however, the meaning is not so great and I’m so big on meanings. Since my husband’s name starts with a “B” and my name starts with a “J” we decided to name our children with those initials. It’s so hard to find nice, unique names that starts with the letter “B” and have a great meaning. However, so far, we love the names of our two sons.
