Constantly have to correct people because they think you say "Brian". Really have to emphasize the "t".

My brother's middle name is Bryant after our dad (Brian) and he loves it. I've never met anyone else who has it.

My first name is Bryant. I LOVE it!!! It's just so unique. No one in my school has this name. It's awesome
