additionalThis former super-trendy name comes from a surname meaning “hill covered with broom” (don’t worry -- we’re talking brushwood, not the cleaning tool) in Old English. It first came onto the charts in the ’50s, then really shot up from the ’60s (average ranking 383) to the ’70s (51). It peaked at number six from ’92 to ’94…perhaps not coincidentally, right around the heyday of Beverly Hills, 90210 and lead character Brandon Walsh, played by Jason Priestley. The name has dropped significantly from that peak, but can hold the honor of being one harbinger to the current Braeden/Caden/etc. trend.
