  • You have to live with the name forever? What about your child. They are the one who will be ridiculed daily if you give them a dopey name. I hate it how people always want to give their kids wacky names because they want to be "different" Grrrrr
    As for your question, I didn't pick out my first baby's name till after he was born. After I had seen him and heard him cry. We ended up naming him Nicholas because he was born in Dec and was a chubby baby. (St. Nick) Anyway, get a baby name book, one of those that has the meanings in it. Check out the names that match your heritage or your lifestyle. Then start checking the ones you like and and see what they sound like with your last name.
    Personally I don't like Brayden, reminds me of a horse, and it sounds funny with your last name. JMO- You asked for it.

  • i dont like the name brayden, someone in our family named her son that and everyone didnt like it. buuut its your son and many people like it. if you are changing your mind cause others dont like it, dont change it. If i have a girl one day i want to name her Oliva, My mom told me thats a fat girls name...but i dont care. its hard to give examples of name because i dont know what you like...sorry

  • Braydon Belton does sound a little odd together.I do like the name Braydon though.But it you'll probably get used to it after awhile,as will everyone else.We had a really hard time naming our daughter.Poor thing didn't have a name till 2 days after she was born..and we started looking at and writing down names not long after we found out we were pregnant,lol.I like the names Dominic and Andrew for boy names.Good luck and happy baby name searching!

  • Brayden is fine, but it feels a little too balanced with the last name (I'm not sure why that feel funny to me, but it does). If you like to have the same first and last initial, then maybe Brice - just don't use an "O" or an "I" name for the middle because then he will be B.O.B. or B.I.B.!
