My friend has this name and spells it Brie.

It sounds like short for Briana. I didn't know that this was a name all by itself. I think that if you had this name, people would always be wondering if it was short for something.

I like Bree, but only as a nickname, like for Gabriella or something.

My niece is called Briea pronounced BREE-A but I can't find that name on here. I think it's a lovley name, but Bree is alright too.

I really like this name but I can't imagine it as a nickname for Gabrielle.

My friend's name is Bryana she uses this as a nickname except it's Brie too.

It just reminds me of the cheese.

I love this, but only as a nickname. My name is Brianna, but people call me Bri, which I pronounce the same way.

My friend's name is Bree and it is not short for anything. She said in preschool, her preschool teacher called her Brianna and she did not answer because she did not know she was talking to her! The teacher called her parents and said that she would not answer her name, Brianna, and her parents said her name is Bree, just Bree. The lady had never heard of that as a plain first name.

Bree is the name of a young vampire in Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer.

In Chronicles of Narnia, specifically in The Horse and His Boy, there is a Talking Horse named Bree. A boy named Shasta rides him to Archenland. The name is short for Bree-hinny-whinny-hoohy-ha, a typical Talking Horse name. It is my belief, however, that C. S. Lewis got the name from Tolkien (or the other way around) because they were friends and contemporaries.

Too minimalist. Sounds like a nickname for Sabrina or Gabrielle, which I would rather use. The name is somewhat too girly and youthful.

My friend has this name but it is spelt Breigh, closer to the original Irish spelling. There was also a girl in our high school who used Bre as a nickname for Breanne.

This name is kind of simplistic and rather like a nickname as opposed to a name on its own. My mother can't stand this one.

Bree is the main character in the webseries lonelygirl15, a homeschooled self-admitted dork. The webseries originally was posted as her video blog, so it shocked many viewers that the friendly, amusing Bree was actually a fictional character.

My name is Bree and weirdly enough I am homeschooled! And a bit of a dork too. I get compliments on my name and am rarely asked if it is short for something. I've always loved being named Bree.

Misspelled cheese.

Well my name is Bree just Bree and like my name it's different like me but it is annoying because people always think my name is Brianna.

Bree Daniels, the name of Jane Fonda's character in the movie "Klute". The Bree in the movie was a prostitute.
-- Jamesina  6/11/2010
I think this is a very pretty name! I don't like the names Gabreiella or Brianna and I don't think "Oh, Bree must be short for something!" It can stand on its own. I know a girl named Bree and have always liked the name.

Bree Amer (b 1982) is an Australian TV personality who first became known on "Big Brother 2004". She had treatment for thyroid cancer after a doctor noticed a lump on her throat when he was watching her on TV, and wrote to her to suggest she seek medical advice about it.

Bree Timmins was a teenage character on Australian TV soap. She started out as an overweight sullen geek from a lower-class family, but morphed into an overweight grouchy emo.

Because of the show, I always think of this as a name for a fat bogan chick.
-- keepitreal  1/5/2011
Before Bree Timmins, my impression of the name was that it chosen by wannabe lazy hippy parents, who read "The Lord of the Rings" up until the point the hobbits reached the town of Bree, on the edge of the Shire.

They then went, "Geeze, this book is really LONG! I'm just going to skip through it now but tell everyone that I read the whole thing".

They then chose the name Bree for their daughter to demonstrate how very up with Tolkien they are.

Either that, or they called their daughter after the cheese, but changed the spelling because they were worried it would be pronounced BRY.

Either way, my impression was that it was a name chosen by idiots.

I like it as a nickname for Sabrina or some other name with the "Bree" sound in it, but it sounds too minimal and wallflower-y as a full first name.

Beautiful name sounds great for a carefree funloving girl and can translate to teen and graceful for a woman.
