"My name is Brayden. I associate this name with trailer parks in rural Florida. It is a trashy name and I hate it. But, I believe it accurately reflects my trashiness. Although, the pressures and associations with this name may have tainted me and encouraged this trashiness to arise." Apr. 26, 2020:
"Honesty, I'm sick of hearing it! I don't understand the appeal at all. It's so unclassy and doesn't age well. More parents should go back to the classics. I'm sure their sons would appreciate it." Jan. 10, 2015:

"I chose this name for my son in 1999, based on a dream while pregnant. Only I spelled it Braydon. And, yes,some called him Brandon. But the name fit him well." Oct. 30, 2019:
"My cousin's daughter named her son Brayden. I had never heard of anyone with the first name before. That was new to me. He was born a little over a year ago. I wasn't sure how to spell his name, either. I was just wondering why the name became so popular. Another member of the family named her daughter Jaden. I've since heard of some boys named Jaden or Jayden, but not any girls." May. 5, 2011:
"My son is 2 months old with this name and even his father still has issues with the spelling. Everyone keeps calling him Brandon or they spell it Bradon. It gets under my skin...but I guess i should expect it with it being a little different and all." Jan. 7, 2011:
"When I picked this name for my son almost 6 years ago, I didn't think it would become so popular! I was using a baby name list from 2003, since I became pregnant in '04. The name wasn't even in the top 100. I loved it because it was different. I have met a couple Brayden's, but mine is by far the cutest! His name fits him well! :)" Oct. 13, 2010:
"okay well this is my name.
