    Default Thoughts on this name please....

This little boy will stay with me for a very long time. Then I saw the name on the back of a soccer jumper and it helped me to get over feeling sad about not having a daughter.

    Chippa, you have to go with this name! This little boy has obviously made a big impact on you.

    Who cares what anyone else thinks, once he is here and named, nobody will challenge you on your choice. All kids grow into their names and it won't be long before you can't imagine him being called anything else! Xxx

    It's not my sort of name but I actually quite like it! I prefer it to Brayden, Brandon etc. And if it has special meaning that's even better

    Thank you for writing this! I had another scan today and I just kept thinking "There's Bryden" lol! This little boy I taught was a child I could have easily fostered or adopted. His impact on me will last a lifetime. I'd like to think that this baby of mine will be resilient and positive in the face of adversity no matter what, just like his namesake was. Thanks for your opinions everyone

    That's settled then - you have to call him Bryden! What a beautiful story behind the name

    Thank you @lemonpancakes! I do like that this name had a story behind it and not just something random I made up. Thank you for your comment
