I like this name spelt Breeony if it's pronounced BREE-ONY, and Bryoni if its pronounced BRY-ONY.

Different. But I like it.

It is actually pronounced BRI - O - NEE. You see it's my name! but my PE teachers tend to spell it all different ways!
1. BEE
2. B
3. Bryony
4. Bryoni
5. Briony
6. Brioni
They are endless! but I prefer it spelt brIonY instead of brYonY. I think it adds more variety!

Briony is the main character in the novel Atonement, by Ian McEwan.

Yeah it is and I hope that they do her well because otherwise they would be dragging down my name!

I love this name. I saw Atonement the other day and instantly fell in love, as I normally do with 1) the work of Joe Wright and 2) any movie that has Keira Knightley. I think they did Briony justice though; I now want to read the book.

I love this name, and prefer this to the Bryony spelling. I don't like the double-y's.

I had a rather odd dream a few nights ago that I had identical twin girls, named Briony Lee, and Cecily Faye. I'm taking this as a sign and keeping these names in my memory.

I like this name. It’s a bit unconventional and alternative and it has a kinda androgynous and reversible sound to it. I only like the spelling Briony, though (can’t stand the look of the double Ys). And I really liked the novel "Atonement" (haven't seen the film, though, can't tell if it does Briony Tallis any justice).

I love the sound and feel of this name, but after reading "Atonement" I'm not sure if I could ever use this on a daughter.

I quite like this name but prefer Bryony.
Sister Briony was one of the nuns in the movie "Black Narcissus" starring Deborah Kerr as Sister Clodagh, based on the novel by Rumer Godden. In the movie Briony is pronounced like Brian with a y at the end. I had hoped it would be pronounced with a stressed OH sound in the middle, but at least I found out how to pronounce it.

The spelling Bryony is in my view much nicer, and since the plant is bryony it's also more authentic. The two letters y give this name its charm and flair.
Briony makes the name less memorable and more ordinary, and takes it downmarket.
