I love the name Brennan! My nephew was named it and he is the cutest little boy and a strong one as well. He is quite a warrior. His is spelled B-r-e-n-n-e-n which I like better. I would encourage anyone whose thinking of Brennen as the name of their baby boy to go for it.

Brennan sounds like a rugged, handsome name. The name I had thought of was Joel Brennan.

Nice name. My friend's nephew has this name and at first I thought it was weird because it's her mother's maiden name and I thought they just used that but the more I say it the more I like it.

Another surname in misuse by the Americans. It was once an Irish first name, which became a second name, which was translated to English. Now it is widely recognised as a second name. It is hardly ever used as a first name in it's country of origin.

It would be a nice name except for the everlasting image of Bishop Brennan from "Father Ted".

Also the surname of the character Temperance Brennan in Kathy Reichs' books and TV series.

This is a great name with a cool sound and everything, but since it sounds a tad surname-y as a first name, I'd rather use it as a middle name. It sounds better in that position somehow.

I don't know why, as I usually abhor surname-names, but I LOVE this name. It's just got a lovely strong ring to it, and while it's different enough to be notable, it's also easy to pronounce and spell. I love the meaning, too: I've always been drawn to names with melancholy meanings.

Brennan Manning is a Christian author who wrote "Tales of a ragamuffin" & "Abba's child."

I only know one Brennan, a girl, so I think this is a lovely girl name, but an okay boy name.

Brennan can also be derived from the Irish given name Branán, meaning "little raven," or from German "Brennen," meaning "to burn."

Though this name is masculine, it doesn't sound very masculine to me. I prefer it as a girls name. I actually have a friend named Brennan who's a girl and she loves her name.

The name Brennan was given to 73 baby girls born in the US in 2012. Yes, girls.
