Brendan 1

No thank you.  Just don't like it at all.

Brendan 3

From Brendanus, the Latinized form of the Irish name Bréanainn which was derived from a Welsh word meaning "prince". Saint Brendan was a 6th-century Irish abbot. According to legend he and 17 other monks crossed the Atlantic and reached North America.
The popularity of this and associated names is slowly decreasing around the world.

Brendan 2

From reading the previous reviews, apparently I'm in the minority in preferring Brandon. When I hear Brendan, my reaction is that the kid's parents were too pretentious to just call him Brandon.

Brendan 5

Personally, I love this name. An Italian-American friend, married to a WASP, named his first-born son "Brandon". Oddly enough, "Brandon", although there's only the difference of a letter or 2, is not a name to my liking. I kept harping at him, "Why not Brendan? That's a great Irish name. Brandon sounds like a smug Yuppie from Short Hills..." until he finally responded irritably, "You want to name a kid Brendan? Then have a kid of your own, ok? Then you can name him whatever you want." True, but then I'd have to be married, have to look at my wife in the grim light of morning (and she at me), carry a screaming, vomiting baby on my shoulder throughout the night, change diapers, return home by a certain hour instead of closing the bar like I used to, work hard to support not just myself but other people as well, listen to the crying, the demands for money, attention, time I can't afford to spare, suffer through the tantrums, trips to Disneyland and the Beach, Little League, parent-teacher meetings, report-cards, that first birds'n'the'bees discussion...; truth is, it'd just be a hell of a lot easier to name someone else's kid "Brendan.". So far, though, nobody seems willing to entertain the thought. (Re-reading this before posting it, I'd like to think that I'm not quite the shallow jerk that the remarks might indicate...my ex-girlfriend might disagree, of course.)

Brendan 3

This name essentially means Prince, I suppose that is why so many people like this name. This name has a dignified meaning and is a name of royalty. Me personally, Im going to have to go against the grain because there are so many Brendans now that it is becoming more common. To me, this name is a fairly average name.

Brendan 5

I like Brendan a lot, and the kid would always have great dignity since no accepted nick name is extant, at least on this side of the pond.
