  • I think of Browning guns/rifles.  I like a lot of southern names but I don't know if I could get on board with that one.  MN, fine, but I can't see it for a first name.

  • hahaha I know. I do like the name Branson. But im not so sure my husband does he loves Browning because its a hunting thing. Hes not exactly redneck but hes about as southern as they get. Like Im talking everyone in this town knows his family and him and now me and know them for being "The Weatherfords" IDK and all of there names are very southern. Trying to stick with the theme. Some names sound very strange with Weatherford because I feel like its so country for some reason. haha

    This is exactly why he loves it.

  • I think it's clunky in the FN spot.  Maybe as a middle?

  • Outside of the South, it's going to get a major side-eye that could really represent a problem for your child.

    Well, if you want to go the hunting/gun route, there are other's that I'd like over Browning.  Also, keep in mind that while you guys may live in the south and your child will grow up there it doesn't mean he will always reside there.

  • I'm from the south as well, but I really can't see Browning as a name. Just not a fan, I guess.
  • Thanks guys! Im glad now I have more reason to Veto it since hes vetoed all my names! haha I was on the edge with it but I think I would like it better as a MN
  • Not a fan and I usually love southern names.  How about Bronson or Bowen?

  • I live in the south - never heard it used as a first name.

  • Browning Weatherford is certainly a mouthful...what would a NN be? Brown? Bro?

  • Have you guys considered Colton Weatherford?  I'm only mentioning it since Colt is another brand of gun.  I'd suggest Remington but that's a mouthful of a name.

    I'm not from the South but this was my first reaction too.. Browning rifles! Sort of like naming your kid Hunter because you like to hunt... 

    What about something like Bronson or even Brian?

    This. lo may not live in the South forever. Plus, the whole name is really too much. I like PPs suggestion of Colton.

  • No! I think meat, guns and symbols on every truck in my area! BTW, I live in the country, hunt, eat deer meat, ride four wheelers and have a Browning symbol on my truck!

  • Add me to team that is awful.  I get being southern but I think Browning is leaning more towards redneck (in a bad way)  than southern roots.  I think it's the type of name that others will judge the parents when he's young and no one will take him seriously as an adult.  I agree Colton is better or even Remington as I like the nn Remy.

  • It's a last name for me. I went to school with a girl who had that as a LN.

    What about Brooks?

    Baylor?

     

  • I live in the DEEP south and I've never heard it.

  • I live in the South and I don't like it or understand Browning as a name. It's a brand name. I shop at The Gap for jeans but I'm not going to name my DD that. Very silly to me.
    I suggest Beau.

  • Another Southerner here who thinks it's a no. I have family that hunts, but I don't, so when I hear Browning as a name, I would think he was named after the poet Robert Browning.
