I'm also sceptical of the Bryony theory for the same reason. I can only do free searches on Ancestry but it doesn't look like it was much used as a name anywhere before the mid 20thC. Cleveland Kent Evans is the expert on trends though.

The Welsh idea seems more plausible to me, but I suppose only if this Brinnie had Welsh ancestry.

I can't find any plausible Scottish names.
