- Comments and insights on the name Brynn: | Edit
Just named my baby girl Brynn. I think it sounds very fresh. It's a name that is original and not overused, while at the same time it is not weird or too out there. It's a name that will grow with her. For some reason though people think we're saying 'Bryan' when we tell them her name, which is some what frustrating. But I have gotten nothing but positive feedback over the name choice.
Be prepared for that "Bryan" thing all her life! I am a Brynn born in the early 80's when *no one* else had my name. It used to infuriate me to be called a boy's name. I've kind of gotten over it now and can correct people politely without taking it too personally (usually!). It helps that there are more little Brynns out there (thanks in part to you and your new baby) and people are getting used to seeing the name and recognizing it. :-) On the flip side, I have always loved my name and feel like it really added to my sense of identity to have such a unique name!
My youngest is 2 and named Brynn...and we get the Bryan thing all the time! We've learned to smile and say it's Brynn and just keep going.
Love it and want to name my daughter it, but im scared of the Bryan thing happening
- Personal experiences with the name Brynn: | Edit
My name is Brynn and I was born in 1962. Back then I knew of no one with this name ,Now in 2009 I have seen and heard of it quite frequently. I too went thru the Bryan thing and still do at times . However more and more I am finding people know the name and it really gives me a warm feeling when they pronounce it correctly the first time !!! I love having this name and over the years I have always felt it lent a bit of uniqueness to me. I even had some one I barely knew that liked my name so much they named their daughter Brynn .Boy if that wasn't a GOOD feeling !!!
