We really want a more unique name. We absolutely do not want him to be an name that will be common in his classes in school (like when kids have to be Alex T, Alex H., and Alex L.... no offense to any Alex's out there)! I've always liked Braeden since high school, but I am hearing that it's becoming more popular. Do you know many Braeden's? (I know the spelling is different than normal). And also, it seems like Jaden, Caden, and Aiden are really popular, which sound really close.
On the other hand, we both fell in love with the name Aspen after browsing through a baby name book. It's so very original (we have never ever met or heard of an Aspen), plus I like the whole places as names thing going on. We like the image it projects in our mind... we think Aspen sounds like the name of a creative child, perhaps who paints or writes. My fiance is worried that in school, kids will tease him by calling him A*s for short. I don't think that will be an issue. Oh, and I realize some people think Aspen is a girl's name. In fact, it is unisex!
I think Braeden will become popular very soon seeing as how popular Jaden, Aiden, and Caden are. I really like Aspen, but have to admit when I first read it I thought of it as a girls name. But, I like it as either!
