The surname of the late actor Marlin Brando, this name has a certain swagger to it. With a dually cool meaning of "firebrand" or "sword," this Italian name would make the perfect choice for a little boy.

The name Brando has never made it into the top 1000 on U.S. baby  name charts and would make a nice alternative to more common names such as Brandon, Bradley, Brendan or Brennan.
