  • "unique without being rare and weird, get lots of Brads, and the odd Bruce. But you'll get that with any name." May. 22, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was born in Australia in 1959 and, like several other commenters, was named after Brett Maverick. Obviously this show was also popular in Australia at that time! I moved to the US about ten years ago and, also like other commenters, have often been frustrated that my name is heard as "Brent" or "Brad"." Apr. 27, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brett, and I did appreciate being the only Brett in HS & college, and my career. I was born in 1961 and named after Brett Maverick, the character that Janes Garner played in TV. It?s a crisp fun youthful name. I was often asked if it was a nick name. In the media recently, it was referred to as a ?Frat Boy? name. It?s a good name, strong & unique enough, but not crazy weird. Thanks Mom!" Sep. 9, 2018: Report as inappropriate

I've always enjoyed the fact that I rarely meet others named Brett, and for whatever reason, have always been irritated by the name it's a cheap knockoff. Of course, it probably has more to do with the fact that I knew a kid by that name that I couldn't stand, and people sometimes called me Brent...drawing my ire. Anyway, I love my name. Much thanks to my parents! Good choice!" Nov. 19, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "We named our son Brett because we wanted a short, strong name. I always liked the stories of author Bret Harte, so that was also a factor. Ironically, we thought it was unique so there would be few people with his name. There is not only another Brett at his current company, but they also have the same last name. lol" Nov. 20, 2020: Report as inappropriate
