- Personal experiences with the name Brianna: | Edit
I've always pronounced my name bree-ahna with a soft "a" like "aw" but I get called bree-aana like banana all the time. I'm not banana, I'm banahnah, but I do know a Brianna who's the banana type. Goes both ways though; she gets people calling her bree-awna. Bree is a good nickname. I've always liked Bree and Brianna.
