Super Bowl Baby Name: Baylen Brees
Everyone's been talking about the big game. In case you missed it, the New Orleans' Saints upset the favored Indianapolis Colts to take home the Super Bowl title in yesterday's big game. The Saints were led to victory by their quarterback, Drew Brees, the game's Most Valuabe Player. In accepting his award, Brees declared that his one-year-old son Baylen had been an inspiration to him over the past year.
Here at NameCandy.com we were immediately swamped with requests to add the name Baylen to our database. We've got to admit, the name Baylen is new to us, but somehow, it's not unfamiliar. Baylen is a contemporary invention, one that is not that far off stylistically from Braylen and Brayden. The long a of the first syllable and the ending -en are the two dominant style markings of early-21st century baby boy names. (Think Aidan, Jayden, Caden, Graydon and Hayden). We're guessing that Drew and wife Brittany, loved the names Brayden and Braylen but thought the similarity to their last name was too much.
What do you think of our theory? Other thoughts on the name Baylen?
