I personally think this is a lower class name compared to a name such as Oliver and I'd name my child Oliver rather than Brandon.

My name is Brandon and I am a woman. I have had a struggle all my life with this name because EVERYONE thinks it is a man's name. I have even had health insurance deny me birth control because they thought I was male. I would love to meet other women named Brandon, I thought I was the only one!

I've never met a Brandon that I liked. I've met a handful of Brandon's and they've all been little brats. Brandens on the other hand are okay.

To be honest, this is another one of those names where it's kind of a mixed bag for me. I went through different phases where I liked and hated this name. Right now, I'm kind of okay with this name. Right now my sister is dating a Brandon who's had a really tough life.

Brandon Teena was an American trans man who was raped and murdered in Humboldt, Nebraska. His life and death were the subject of the Academy Award-winning 1999 film Boys Don't Cry, which was partially based on the 1998 documentary film The Brandon Teena Story. Both films also illustrated that legal and medical discrimination contributed to Teena's violent death.

My name is Brandon and I am female. I haven't met another female with my name but lots of guys. And they all, for the most part, have a cool demeaner too. I would love to come across another female Brandon as I believe the name pretty much has a small affect on each day I live.

Brandon is a strong, handsome name for a boy. It's becoming less and less popular with time however, hitting its peak in the mid 90's, due in large part to Actor Jason Priestley's character Brandon Walsh on the extremely popular TV series Beverly Hills, 90210. Most recently it has been popularized by Actor Jesse Hempstead Wright's character Brandon Stark on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. Some other celebrities who bear the name are The Killers frontman Brandon Flowers, Incubus frontman Brandon Boyd, Actor Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee's son), Actor Brandon Routh, and NFL star Wide Receiver Brandon Marshall.

Weird side note: Every Brandon I know or have ever met has had dark hair and dark features. Doesn't sound right for a guy with blonde or red hair.

If I hear the name Brandon, I just imagine the guy is handsome and free spirited. Even if I met one who was not handsome, I would still assume the next Brandon I met would be. It makes me think of California beaches and skater culture. He probably has a friend named Chad.

I hate this name with a passion. It tries way too hard to be oh-so-ruggedly handsome and masculine. It just hits you over the head with it. "Hello, my name is Brandon. I'm just riding into town on my prancing and pawing stallion from a long day of rounding up the dogies. I have rugged chiseled features, a few days' growth of beard, a cigarette rakishly hanging out of my mouth, a body hardened by hours in the saddle, and my cowboy hat dangling over my eyes in an intriguing fashion. Just gonna swing myself down from the saddle now. Stand back, ladies! My name is Brandon!"

I hate this name.

Although I didn't grow up with anyone with this name, in my step family there are two guys named Brandon (and two named Ryan), and at my church, every other boy is either Brandon or William. (I'm serious.) I like how Brandon sounds, but I think it's way too common for me to use.

I rather like the name, even though it's hideously overused and common. It's one of those names that don't sound infantile on adults, and it's got a pleasant-enough sound to it. This name has always made me picture some good-looking young guy with dark brown hair and dark eyes, but who isn't tanned or foreign-looking. Somehow I don't see this name on blond guys, and especially not red-haired guys.

I really like his name. It's so sweet sounding and it reminds me of a bouncing baby boy. I would definitely recommmend this name for anyone to use for their son. Maybe even for their daughter. I think it would be just fine to use it for a girl baby too, but she might be teased a lot through out her life.

I know so many Brandons, but I could meet more and more and still love the name. My cousins think I'm crazy for planning to name my son this, but it makes perfect sense to me. The two men who mean the most to me have the name, so why not? I really love it, though. It's my boyfriend's name and he just means everything to me. He's intelligent and sweet. Funny, but not overbearing. And the same goes for my other Brandon - my closest cousin. Brandon Joel. That'll be my son's name. ^__^
