Brandon

broom, gorse hill
ORIGIN: British
POPULARITY: 167
Brandon debuted on the Social Security Administration charts in the 1950s, perhaps receiving a boost from actor Marlon Brando. With the 1990 arrival of Beverly Hills, 90210 and lead character Brandon Walsh, the name's popularity really took off, peaking from 1992 to '98. Today Brandon is being eclipsed by trendier names like Brayden and Landon, and it is sometimes confused with the Irish name Brendan, which shares the same consonants. Notable namesakes include Brandon Flowers, lead singer of the Killers, NFL star Brandon Marshall and actor Brandon Routh.
