I think Breanna is a beautiful name! When I first heard it I thought it was beautiful and unusual, but now it's gotten too popular.
- Personal experiences with the name Breanna: | Edit
My daughter is named Breanna. We don't pronounce it the traditional way. We pronounce it bree ann uh. She gets very upset with people who mispronounce it. Even more so since having a younger cousin named Brionna who has the traditional pronunciation of the name
I love my name Breanna. I like the way it's spelled because it's different then the common brianna. No one can ever spell it right. I also pronounce it differently too. Instead of the common bre-on-uh it's bre-ann-uh. When i was young i was always correcting people on the way they said it but the older I got and more people I met it got to the point where I didn't care as much. Some people would ask me which I did prefer. I also had tons of nick names because I play basketball which was mostly bre but also others like brea and B. Of course some of my closest friends liked to called me banana. My family also called me nana.
I really do like my name but it's just gotten a bit to common. My mom named me when it was rarely even heard of. I guess every mom then did too. There is the girl at my school who has the exact same name as me. Last name and all. Also my name is Breanna renea which are 2 common names just spelled differently there are a ton of girls also with that name just spelled brianna renee.
