I really love this name, it is sweet, short and not too cutesy for a girl. There was an episode of the original 'CSI' that featured a little girl named Brenda, played by a very young Dakota Fanning.

I like this name a lot. We are trying to find a name that is not real popular, but not way out in left field either. This name is at the top of our list. My dad's name is Brandon, so that makes me like it even more.

The cable channel TNT has a great show called The Closer. The lead character is a police detective named Brenda Johnson. She is pretty, intelligent, and tough. Great show!

No one should be called Brenda because when the child goes to school the teacher will call out Brendan instead of Brenda.

Brenda is not one of my favorite names, it is cold and harsh sounding.

I think this name is pretty. I like the simplicity of it. I hate frou-frou names like Gabriella and Isabella and I hate overly popular names like Ashley and Jessica. This name strikes a nice balance. If I ever have a daughter this will probably be her name.

I like Bren. It has a nice sound.

I read a funny anecdote once about a born-again couple - they had two daughters and a third on the way. The wife had a terribly difficult labor and lost her religion in the process. They ended up with Faith, Hope and Brenda.

For some strange reason, this name has, for a long time, made me picture a mean high school girl from the late 80s or early 90s with long, brown hair and sort of pale skin who has an arrogant and vicious personality. The name itself isn't so bad, but I prefer Brenna.

From the Old English word brand, meaning sword.

I think it's a very pretty name.

I like this name - it sounds pretty and it's not too popular.

In the English satirical magazine "Private Eye" Queen Elizabeth II is referred to as Brenda - I'm not sure why, but it could be because it's seen as a lower middle class name, or not a timeless classic majestic like Elizabeth.

This name makes me think of a plain, big-boned, loud and rather masculine woman in her 40s who plays golf.

For some reason, this is exactly what every Brenda I've ever met has been like.

The infamous Brenda Ann Spencer, who shot at a schoolyard full of children. She injured eight children, a cop, and killed the principle and janitor. When asked why she did it, she replied, "I don't like Mondays, this livens up the day."

Survivor: Nicaragua's 10th Place Winner's name was Brenda Lowe.

She also appeared on the Spanish game show "Que Dice La Gente", and is also a former Miami Dolphins Cheerleader and also owns a Paddle-board company in Miami, Florida.

I like the Bren sound in this name, but the Beverly Hills 90210 character association ruins it for me. However, don't let that stop you from using it-that show's old enough that a little Brenda born today won't be teased by her peers for the association.
