  • Additional Info:
    One can only guess that Brain, which started showing up on the popularity charts in the early to mid 1960's was either an attempt to spell the popular name Brian differently, or simply the wrong spelling of the name. Unless of course, those who have chosen Brain have done so as an hommage to the body part, but that remains doubtful.

    Brain has charted among the 1000 most popular names in the United States regularly since that time and straight into the early 1990's.
