A sturdy Irish baby name that’s as classic as they come, Brendan competes with more modern takes on the name, like Braden and Brandon. Still, it’s what Mark Wahlberg chose for his son in 2008. Brendan is the name of a renowned sixth-century saint who, according to legend, sailed across the Atlantic with a large group of monks from Ireland in search of paradise. So this is a good name choice if you’d like your baby boy to grow up to be adventuresome.
