- Personal experiences with the name Brynne: | Edit
I've always liked the name Brynne. It is constantly misheard and mispronounced, however once I spell it out there's often an "oh wow, I've never heard that before, it's so pretty." It has been complimented all my life and I rarely meet anyone who has the same name. I feel it makes me sound intelligent, strong and unique!
Um, hey. My name is Brynne. I mean, I've had pretty good experiences with it. I've always been nice to myself and others, so that's a plus. On the downside, though, I meet men with the same name and they look quite dejected to find that we share the same forename. On the plus side, it's easy to say when you're feeling lazy and one syllable is your stopping point. I've always seen that as a 'pro'.
My name is Brynne as well, and I've always liked my name for its uniqueness. People often compliment it saying it's really pretty, but I never liked the meaning. For years, I thought that the only meaning was mound or hill, but since I found out the alternate meanings, like high, noble, and exalted, I like it a lot more.
