A funny comment

I got the funniest comment on my post introducing Jack and Braley. Someone suggested that we use James Braley instead of Braley James. I guess it "goes better" with Jack and Paige.

They also asked if it was a family name or one that I made up. It is a family name. It is David's mother's maiden name, and also David's middle name. Jack is my mother's maiden name.

I hope that clears up any questions people have about the names we selected!

I know that Braley is an unusual choice, and this is only the start of people wondering about it. We like it and think it goes great with our other kids' names. He also just looks like a Braley. So it sticks : )

I love the name Braley. When you first posted about it I thought that it is a very strong name. In my ind it seems as if a very professional successful name! It's perfect!!!

I love your choice :) Curious how it is pronounced? In my head it sounds like "Hailey" but with a "Br" instead of the "H". Is that right?

I love his name and cannot stand the people that are trying to tell you to name your child something else.

He is YOUR baby - not theirs. And, his name totally fits him. He so looks like a Braley!

Paige, Jack and Braley are great names and I love that Jack and Braley are your mothers' maiden names. I'm surprised about the amount of comments you have gotten on the name Braley. I heard it the other day at the playground so it can't be that unusual. My son's name is uncommon and I get asked a lot about it. I actually like the questions because it gives me a chance to tell the story behind it. : )
