Brendan. I don't care for either, but -ayden isn't my thing, for the most part.

I prefer Brady and Brennan to both of those.

BUT, since I have to pick one... Brendan.

Brendan. I don't like the "Bray" sound at the beginning of Braden.

Thank you to pattyandthemoos for the beautiful siggie!

Neither here too!

I don't like most of the -aiden names. And, I don't like Brendan because the syllable rhyme and the Bren syllable sounds so feminine to me (Brynn). I have a cute 18-month-old nephew with the name Brenden and it still hasn't made me like the name any more.

I think I'd go with Braden (even through I prefer the Brayden spelling) because the "Bra/y" sounds more masculine than "Bren".
Thank-you GraysMama for my beautiful siggy!

Braden... Gaby was potentially going to be Braiden/Brayden, it was the only boys name her father liked

If I have to pick, Brenden. But in all reality, NEITHER!

Brendan. Not crazy about it, but I am not a fan of the Aidan rhyming names, or any of the Bray names, so Braden is a double strike-out for me.

I love Braden! The DB and I have talked about that name over and over. We love how unique, but still normal it is.
