Actually Bray means Roar, Bellow or Trumpet ( also yes, the sound a donkey makes ). So this could have meaning. Son of the trumpeter? Or son of the one bellow xD nevermind...

Yvonne Roche Says:


I named my son Brayson and everyone loves it. It's fresh and the name has originated from Ireland as a surname. Naming children with a surname has gained popularity over the past few years. With extensive research I've created Brayon's meaning. It's Brave son of the hills or rising land. Enjoy!

Unfortunately I see the connection quite clearly

If I named my son Brayson I'm sure I'd hear nothing but "Hee Haw" jokes from my family. Anything spelled with "bray" like the sound a donkey makes is no Bueno in my opinion. Plus DH doesn't like names that could potentially end up getting our child teased and he will come up with every possible joke for a name he can showcasing potential grade school torture for our kid. Gotta love him.

I like Brayson. I actually like the name Brayson. It's better than all the names it rhymes with, in my opinion. I don't even care if it's made up. Is that so wrong?
