I love it! Very masculine.
My husband’s name is Branson and he’s indifferent about it. I personally love it. My in-laws didn’t even think about the city in Missouri when they named him. Obviously I think it can be used as a first name, and is much more pleasing than the ever popular ‘Brandon’.
This is not a name. It's a town and a surname.
This does not seem like a first name to me, probably because Tom Branson is the chauffeur-turned-estate-manager on "Downton Abbey," whom the Dowager Countess always wants to keep calling by his last name even though he married one of her granddaughters.
Ughh. I'm so tired of people turning every other surname into a first name. What about this name makes it attractive as a first name? It sounds quite uneducated and is probably very popular in the unwed teenage parent community. It's only a matter of time before it crosses the gender line and spawns "feminine" variants like Bransyn, bransin, bransynn, or bransen.
My typical rule for surname-turned-forenames is that they best be left until the end of the first name and middl ename... in other words: they should remain last names. I admit that there are a select few that I can tolerate with a quiet disgust-- but "Branson" does not happen to be one.
I find it unbelievably juvenile and unprofessional, uneducated, borderline "kre8tiv," and entirely unattractive.
This is a city in southern Missouri.
For some reason, this name makes me think of a slightly chubby, obnoxious, and annoying 12-year-old boy. Besides, I don't really like names that start with ''Bran'', with the exception of Brandon.
Amos Branson Alcott was a teacher, writer, and proponent of Transcendentalist thought in the 19th century. However, he is likely best known to many as the father of Louisa May Alcott, author of many books, including Little Women.
