Is the name Brackyn for a girl tacky?

I am having trouble with my boyfriend trying to pick our names for our kids. We were thinking Brackyn but then it might be a little tacky. Help please?

  • That's not a name. Why would you name a baby that?? It doesn't make any sense.

  • Brackyn makes me think of a mess of bushes and stuff on the side of the road.

    I'm not trying to be mean at all, but I really do think y'all can come up with something a LOT better. Look for Teresa Norman's "A World of Baby Names" there is literally 30,000+ names in there from cultures ALL around the world, up to and icluding, Mythological names.

  • Afterthought: My husband and I, individually, sat down with that book and wrote a list of names we each liked for a boy and a girl. Then we sat down together and swapped lists. If I didn't like a name on HIS list I could cross it off, and same with him. We also had veto power. If I really liked a name he crossed off I could veto him and keep it on my list. Then we just kept whittling down the list of names until we had one we both liked. It took us, not counting searching through the book, an afternoon to agree.

  • If YOU think it's tacky, then don't use it. But none of our opinions should really matter when it comes to naming your baby. What inspired y'all to come up with Bracken?
