I guess this could be pretty cute on a freckled kid.

Pronounced "brieth".

Really beautiful name (and much more feminine than masculine, to me). It reminds me slightly of Blythe, except I like Braith better. However, I most like Braithwen (pronounced BRIEDH-wen), a concoction I made up recently but for all I know could be actually used in Wales.

This isn't used in Wales, and it isn't Welsh for 'speckled' - that's 'brith'. It's mostly used in Australia, where it's pronounced Brayth, not briyth. Just a guess, but I'm wondering if it's from the same source as Braith (pronounced brayth) in the surname Braithwaite - apparently from Old Norse 'breithr' meaning broad. [noted -ed]

Braith is a Welsh name mostly used for girls. Its meaning is multicolored.

The Welsh word for speckled is 'brith' not 'Braith'. Braith could perhaps be a deviation from the word brith to make it sound similar to the existing (English) surname Braithwaite - which means 'broad clearing'.
