Brendan James or Brennan James are nice but I do see what you mean about them not going perfectly with your style. I can't seem to think of any good boys ideas for you though. : /
Briony Ann or Bronte Ann are my favorites, although I am not sure they are close enough to Brenda for your liking.
Brendan James is a great name, I like it a lot. It's a classic Irish name and nowhere as trendy as, say, Aiden or Mason.
Brennus / Breno James
Anne (I just think it looks more complete)
@Kiele - I LOVE Brenner! Brenner James has flow and has my unusual taste I wanted. Thank you!
@southern.maple - I don't want to use Sullivan because I know she'd probably think it would be too weird to have her grandson named after her maiden name! Lol. I like Bryn because that means I can have a long middle name since Bryn is only one syllable!
@mommydearest - I like Brice and Brett. However, my dads' cousin's name is Brett and since we're close, I wouldn't want to use it. Brice is another matter and I'll definitely have to consider it. Brice James is too cute. (: Although, I'm worried about teasing since Brice is basically almost saying Rice.
@silver - If I name him Brennan (which I'm very seriously thinking about besides Brenner now), his nickname would most likely be Bren. I LOVE Brenner James and Brennan James. They're both exactly what I wanted. Also, I'm sold on Beatrix. It's becoming more popular, but it's so cute and I love the nickname. Also, I'm a huge syllable dweeb when it comes to names. I can't have a fn and a mn to be the same syllables. Like Bryn Ann, I can't do it. Beatrix Ann fits what I want.
@sunshine.10 - With Brennan being so close to Brendan, it would seem like I wouldn't like it, but weirdly, I do. Brennan James has a flow I really like and the syllable count is great. I really, really like Bronte from your list. And I really, really, really like Bronte Ann. All those 'really' s show how immature I am, huh? Lol.
So far, it's come down to three names for the girls and boys.
- Brenner James
- Brennan James
- Brice James
- Bryn Ansely/Annabeth/Annalie
- Beatrix Ann
- Bronte Ann
I really love all of these and it'll be hard to decide, but at least I have a few more years until it really matters! Thank you everyone for posting on this thread. Means a lot. I want to honor somebody who is more of a superhero than Superman could ever be. That's just facts.
No more mushy stuff, I promise. (: What do you think of three middle names. I see it a lot on NameBerry and was wondering how exactly do you do that? Lol. Without it looking like a mess. For example: Brenner Alexander James. What does that look like?

I like Brennan much better than Brenner - or just Bren! Bren is one of the few names that i think works well on both a boy or a girl. Bren James or Bren/Bryn Julianne(or Annika or something like that) gets my vote.
