Good Christ this name sounds disgusting!  Just say it out loud.  Bracken.  It sounds like the noise a femur makes when it breaks in half on a ski slope.

This may be the worst sounding name that I have seen since our very first entry on the Stupid Names List…Breckstin.

Lifted from aunt Wiki: The word bracken is of Old Norse origin, related to the Swedish word bräken, meaning fern.

Oh — that makes it sound so much better!

Isn’t this a kind of bush with thorns in it?

Ha! It totally made me think of the Cracken (from Clash of the Titans)! Either way, not a good name option for a child.

This is a good name for a pet, we had a guinea pig called Bracken.
