We're all about counting our chickens here. I love baby names, and we're TTC our first.

I think they both names sound really nice together. I guess it would depend on how it flowed with your last name, but I think I like Carter Eli better. I like the name Bryson/Brison a lot, but I'm not sure about Eli as a first name. I think it flows better as a middle name.

I am biased as my nephew is named Elijah and goes by Eli, but I love it! I am not sure which of the two I like, for some reason I can't wrap my head around Carter and Brison with Eli. But that is just personal taste. Either way Eli is a cute and handsome name!

I am biased towards Eli as a first name We have received so many nice comments on his name
However, of your choices I think Carter Eli SOUNDS better together.

With you last name ending in ER I would chose Eli over CartER, but both are great names!
I do like Bryson, but spelled like that because the other spelling makes me think 'bison'.

I'd have to go with Eli Brison.

While I like Carter more than Brison, I much prefer Eli as a first name rather than Carter. Plus, with the repeating "er" endings in the first and last names... it sounds a little weird with Carter as a first name.

I agree with the others about the repetition of the -er being a bit much. I do prefer Carter to Bryson, but if you want to go with Bryson I'd go with the spelling I'm using.
