Brandon sounds dashing, so it's no surprise it swept onto the scene as a popular soap opera name. It also sounds classically masculine, which has given it staying power. The name is still in the very mainstream of fashion, but with so many Brandons arriving through the '80s and '90s, this dashing hero could be coming due for a well-earned rest.
