Most color names, like Scarlet and Violet, are definitely female, but not this one. Brown is as rich and warm as the tone it denotes, though we must admit the Italian version Bruno has more spark and substance.

I just don't like it. Personally not my style.
so I'm watching the credits of Spongebob and I see someone was named Brown Johnson.... think about that for a minute.
People put down names all the time... on naming websites. It's ok to dislike a name on here.
I prefer Grey
Thank you for saying that! I am probably overly sensitive but I looked up my little ones name just to see what it said and was sad at anything negative. I appreciate you responding so kindly.
I'm sorry. I have actually quite liked the name lately and wasn't thinking clearly when I wrote that. Obviously I did not exercise restrain. I really was a bully, looking back at the things I wrote years ago and thanks to people like you, I have learned my lesson about writig such things.
Well, we named our son Brown and its sad to me that you would actually take the time to write out how awful you think that is! Wow! We happen to love it. It sounds bold and strong and wise to me. And he's an amazing kid with a unique name. Restraint is best when overcome with the desire to put down someone's name. That is what children do.
No. WHY would anybody name their child Brown!? Why?!
