Lovely name. Easy to grow up with. It's a fitting name at any stage in life- I can see it on a baby, child, teen, adult of any profession, as well as an old man. I like it spelled Brendon better, but that's just me. GREAT name.:)

I love the name Brendan, especially as it is the name of one of my best friends. I think he's the only Brendan I know. There's more Brandon's but I prefer Brendan a lot more.

Heard a girl named Brendan and was really annoyed. It means "prince". How feminine is THAT? I think it's a good Irish name for a boy.

I have a very good association with this name. I have always loved this name, and if I have a son, I plan on naming him Brendan. I think Brendan is a beautiful name for a boy.

This is my name, I love it, easy to grow up with, very laid back sounding, very Irish, and not as Beverly Hills 90210 as Brandon. I love my name so much. I pronounce it BREN-din.

I absolutely love this name! I am expecting my first son and will give this name to my child. It is a beautiful, strong Irish name which gives the impression of strong character, charm, handsomeness, intelligence. I love it!

Actually, Brendan seems to have three meanings depending on your source. Many sites and books claim it means 'smelly hair', some say, as this one, that it means 'prince'. However, Bruce Lansky's books claim it means 'little raven'. I'm not sure which is true, I looked it up extensively once and got varied answers. 'Prince' as a meaning is very rare to find, 'little raven' is listed as the most common meaning.

It should be noted, however, that Bruce Lansky is notoriously inaccurate when it comes to meanings and origins (Mackenzie meaning "child of the wise leader", anyone?).
