Uck- I really don't think it's a good idea to name your kid after a Confederate General. I hope this name dies out fast.

I would favor Brandon, Brendan, and or Brayden over this meaningless name.

White-trashy, hick name chosen by trailer park parents and unwed mothers. Sounds ugly. Teachers will not be steering young Braxton on to college. This is unfortunate, as it's not his fault.

Another negative association with this hideous name: brackish, as in brackish water. Salty, but also (so says the online Dictionary) "unpleasant or distasteful."
By any definition, it isn't fit to drink.

In 2018, 2 is the most common age for an American (U.S.) Braxton who is registered male with the Social Security Administration. It is the 1, 381st most common male first name for living U.S. citizens.

Love love love the name. My youngest is named Braxton. Very strong, professional, mature name.

I love the name Braxton. It's a sexy name for a man or boy.

I love this name. I actually named my youngest Braxton Matthew

If I had it to do all over again I wouldn't change anything. He is handsome, beautiful, tan, a great student and loves sports. I give Braxton a 10.

This is a loathesome name. Of all the boys' names trending today this is the worst. Not only is it a medical name, Braxton-Hicks contractions, but the sound is grating and jarring, a mix of 'ax' and the word "AFLAC!" as squawked by the duck in the commercial. Braxton has all the charm of a chainsaw revving up. Please let this trendy name die out!

Brax sounds like the noise you make when you burp.

I also don't see the appeal of this name. It's awful. Besides 'Braxton Hicks' it reminds me of Brak, the annoying red dude on Space Ghost.

Prefer this as a surname.

Why ANYONE would name their child something that is associated with pain is beyond my comprehension. Braxton-hicks contractions. The fact that this so called name is within the charts is mind boggling.

Not to mention that Braxton sounds absolutely overly modern and will age laughably badly. I picture a Braxton to have high school dropout teen parents! :S.

Not a terrible choice, but what's so special about it? It doesn't mean anything nice, Braxton Hicks ext. Brax sounds like a hick. Won't age well.

Braxton hicks contractions

Awful, awful and very silly name.

If I was 18 years old, living in a trailer park on food stamps, then chances are I would name my kid this. Very unsophisticated, un-polished and white-trashy.

Braxton gives me the image of a handsome young man. Popular with the girls, unpopular with their parents. He is athletic with a cheeky sense of humour. The leader of the boys club. Under his tough guy image is a heart of gold. Sometimes feels misunderstood, but is quick to dust himself off and get back on the horse.

My little brother has this name, I really like it. I don't understand why people think its just a name for children, I actually see it more of a name for a grown man rather than a young boy.
I play a game with him, where he is king Braxton of the Braxtonians in Braxtonia, but I say all of the 'un' sounds as 'own', so instead of 'Brax-TUN' its 'Braxt-OWN'.

I dislike this name intensely. It's a trendy surname with an unattractive sound and a bad association (why would you name your kid after false labour pains?)

The original famous person with this name was the Confederate general Braxton Bragg. Until around 1990, the name was primarily found in the Southern USA but has since spread.

Ughhh. I don't like this at all. I hate names with x's, (jaxon, Paxton, Lennox... Etc.) and the -ton ending is WAY too surname-y, Winston is an exception. This sounds like something teen parents would come up with because they thought it was "cute" and "cool". Well, it's neither. It doesn't sound like a real name, and its very youthful. An old man named Braxton? I guess it's better than Ryder or kayden, but still. I guess I'm just a traditionalist... I'm calling it now, this will probably be used as a feminine name soon, maybe spelled braxtyn or something to make it "unique". God help us all.

This is a wonderful name! I can see it on a little boy, a teenager and a grown man, and it is extremely attractive either way. I want a future son of mine to have this name, coupled with the middle name Jacob.

Braxton Kelley, an American football player.

I loathe this name. It sounds youthful in an immature way. When I picture a man named Braxton, I think of a middle-aged guy with a beer belly, bleached, spiky hair, in a Hawaiian shirt, who acts like a frat boy. Now, there are surely going to be plenty of Braxtons who aren't like that, but the name gives me that mental image, and it sounds butt-ugly as well.

I think Braxton is a really cool and unique name. I had never heard of it until I saw it on this website and I think it's an awesome name for a guy. I would name my kid this.

I know someone who actually named their son Braxton Hicks, so what happens when this kid grows up and realizes he's named after false labor?

I love this name, not only is it an old family name from the 1920's but it came back in my family this year with the birth of my grandson, Braxton Parker Davis.

I think of Braxton Hicks' contractions.

It kinda reminds me of something you'd name your cat, but I think it's cute anyway.

Tony Braxton is a female singer with the hit song "Unbreak my Heart".

This has a raw quality to it. Kind of cute for a little boy - hot for a grown man.
