Struggling to find a name for DS2, saw this today and really liked it. It seems to go nicely with DS1's slightly unusual name and I think Breck is a cute NN.

Can't see any particular negatives although I'm aware it won't be to everyone's tastes! grin

The only other I'm aware of is actor Breckin Meyer.

Just musing before putting it on the official 'list'.

Where I come from there'd be a 'bad' added to that before you'd got him out the hospital!

Fluffy24 Sun 09-Aug-15 22:31:29

And not if your surname sounds anything like beacon hmm

SmugairleRoin Sun 09-Aug-15 22:32:39

Sounds like Bracken....if he was in my class I'd be accidentally calling him Bracken all the time! blush

I don't have strong feelings on the name one way or another op. Tis grand.

Hmm, I guess there is that association- DP and I seem to be the only people in the world that thought it rubbish and gave up on it so didn't think of that!

I'd doubt as a pop culture reference it will last long enough to make a significant impact on DS2s life though. I could be wrong and he might forever curse us or it could be a guarantee he'd stay away from the Meth lab!grin

It sounds like "break in" as in break into someone's house... It's awful IMO.

I love it! Strong and different without being too "out there".

I like most names, especially unique ones: this is lovely. I do agree with fluffy though - that was my first thought too.

What?? Never heard of it. Sheltered life.

Saw thread title and immediately thought... Breakin-Bad.

GreenbackBoogie Sun 09-Aug-15 23:08:18

His nicknames at school will be burglary/bad/shattered/thief/rocks/glass/trespass etc. Absolutely awful IMO.

Breaking Bad
Break In


Missdee2014 Sun 09-Aug-15 23:08:59

Awful. Sorry but it sounds made up and definitely not a name.

MissBattleaxe Sun 09-Aug-15 23:09:55

Nope. It sounds daft

Enchufla Sun 09-Aug-15 23:11:16

Its over the top awful

CrystalMcPistol Sun 09-Aug-15 23:13:41

The skater dude from Clueless is a Breckin I think. It sounds like an American's idea of a fancy English name.

AltoPalo Sun 09-Aug-15 23:27:57

Brickin' it
Break in

Instantly thought of Breckin Meyer, I fucking love him. Not overly keen on the name though I like the "feel" of it iyswim.

urbinosparrot Sun 09-Aug-15 23:38:09

Breckin wind?

You'd be setting the poor child up for a lifetime of teasing. Don't do it.

BlinkingHeck Sun 09-Aug-15 23:41:14

Yorkshire slang for breaking.
e.g 'you will end up breckin your ankle if you go out in them shoes'

melonribena Sun 09-Aug-15 23:41:51

Breckin Meyer!

It's a mis spelled version of Brecon for me. I don't like it at all sorry.

CrystalMcPistol Sun 09-Aug-15 23:47:40

Breckin wind?
