  1. My husband chose this name after one of his friends who passed.

  2. I can’t remember who in the family suggested it but my kids and husband loved it and were not budging. Although there were other names I liked as much, this one stuck and I can’t imagine him anything else now.

  3. I’ve always loved the name Preston

  4. My husband and 1st son’s names begin with a “P” so I decided to stick with that letter. I like that the name is simple to spell & pronounce and it is not a popular name but it is a strong, solid name.
