25 Adorable Baby Names For Boys With Big Brown Eyes

Brown is an amazing color since it is the color of the earth. It is a natural color since many living things have this wonderful color. The majority of the population in the world has brown eyes. Most of the population living in Africa, Asia, and the Middle East has brown eyes. In the United States, about 41% of the population has brown eyes.

The amount of melanin in the eye determines the color of the human eye. The more melanin one has the browner his or her eyes are. People with blue eyes tend to have very little melanin while people with green eyes have more melanin than those with blue eyes. There are different shades of brown eyes. There are people with hazel brown eyes, others with honey brown, some with light brown, and others with dark brown. The more concentrated melanin is in one’s eye the darker the shade of brown.

Unlike other traits in the human body, eye color is not hereditary. A child can either take one of the parents color or a blend of the two parents’ eye color or have very different eye color than that of its parents. Newborn babies are born with the cutest puppy dog eyes. Part of what makes children adorable is their big iris eyes.
