Brandon has been a boy name favorite for the past several decades. It hit its peak in popularity in the early 90s, perhaps thanks to Beverly Hills 90210‘s stand-up guy Brandon Walsh. More contemporary sounding counterparts like Landon and Braden are quickly catching up and may soon surpass the classic Brandon.
