Never heard of the name Brinley? You must not live in Utah. The state is a naming world unto itself, and while the rest of the country wasn't looking Utah parents made Brinley a major in-state hit with multiple popular spellings. The spelling Brinley gives it surname style, while Brynlee is more like a composite name ("Katelynne") that emphasizes the nickname Bryn.

Personal experiences with the name Brinley: | Edit

We named our daughter Brinley because I instantly fell in love with the name. I love that there are so many nicknames, everyone in the family gets to call her something different. I think it's a name that she can grow with as well, which is great.

Had my little brother been a girl, he would have been some variation of Brinley. My parents hadn't decided on spelling, and were considering Brynlee and possibly Brynleigh or Brynnleigh.

So what did they name your little brother?
