    Default Thoughts on this name please....

    Hi all!

    I'm due to have boy number 3 in September. I want a name that is unusual. Can you give me your thoughts on the name Bryden? Possibly also spelt Brydon. Middle name will be Glenn (DH's name). I've got a bit of a personal back story behind this name so don't be too harsh if you're not a fan

    My eldest two are Isaac and Hamish.

    Hit me with it!


    Me + DH = DS1 (6), DS2 (2) and #3 due September 8th

    I don't mind it, but it reminds me of Rob Brydon. Not a bad thing, he's a funny, funny guy. I love the names of your other two little men :-)

    I don't love it but i certainly don't hate it. I think Braiden but correct myself each time.

    There's nothing terrible about it. It's certainly not a name that people will snigger at, if that's what you're worried about.
    It's actually quite nice and definitely unique but not silly sounding.
    My first thought was also Brayden, which I really love.

    Lol thanks @Marigold! I was just re-reading that thread about cruel names and it did cross my mind! A close friend of mine has a Brayden this name is just a variation. Thanks for the thoughts ladies!

    It makes me think of a made up version of Bryn or Bryce mixed with Brandon.

    I don't like it.

    I don't think it goes with your other boys names, they're quite "normal" so to throw a unique name into the mix sounds a bit disjointed.

    I don't think it matters if you have two kids with "normal" names and one with a more unusual one. People don't need matching sibling names - they're individuals not Huey Dewey and louey (ducks).

    I'm not a fan, sorry.

    Also, I just can't picture an adult with that name.
