Comments for BRITNEY:

I love this name, because I love Britney Spears. I have thought about naming my own daughter Britney after this wonderful lady, but decided against it in case one day my baby girl decides to follow in Britney's footsteps, she'll need a name of her own.

A dreadful name since Britney Spears, aka "Pop Tart", carries it. Plus, the original name, Brittany, has been mangled.

I prefer Brittany, really.

The name Brittany symbolizes the region of France where British Celts made their home after the Anglo-Saxons invaded their native Britain, the name of which is from the name of a Celtic tribe.

I think it is a lovely name. I wouldn't call my child this name but since Britney Spears this name has got a lot more popular!

I don't like this name. I prefer Brittany. It needs that 'ta' in the middle.

This name is popularising all over America. Mostly thanks to Britney J. Spears. It is understandable because she's the queen of pop, unlike Madonna, she is relentful mother, she was a former Harvard student and she has taken the world by storm.

I think that you do not see many people by the name of Britney when they are 80 and up years old but I love the name!

Notice how all the Brittany names, all the various spellings, have gone way down in popularity in the US in the last few years? Not even in the top 100 anymore. I actually think Britney Spears's popularity has something to do with this.
I grew up in Oklahoma, and from about 1986 on up to the mid-nineties, it seemed like 9 ot of 10 baby girls were called Brittany/Brittney/Britney/whatever. Now I don't know ANY girl under the age of about 10 named any of those.
I am a bit puzzled though, by a few comments posted about Ms. Spears. First of all, what does her having a father figure have to do with whether we think she's talented or not? I happen to think she's a no-talent bimbo who got very very lucky, and whether she has no father figure or many won't change my opinion of her. She is an adult and makes her own choices. Also, what on earth is a relentful mother?

Blonde Cheerleader! Not that we have them over here but that's what I think of when I hear the name. Or the trashy Britney Spears. I much prefer the spelling Brittany, if you're going to name anyone this.

My name is Britney and I was born in 1983, at the beginning of the Britney-naming bonanza. The name is dated to the 80s and 90s at this point, due to mass popularity. The association with Britney Spears is very strong. I can't tell you the number of people who call me Britney Spears as a sort of teasing nickname.

I never liked this name because of one bully named Britney I grew up with. I know her name has nothing to do with it, but it just got stuck in my head: Britney = bitchy bully. I know it's not true, but hey. There are some tihngs you just can't undo.

I don't care about Britney Spears, I just want to talk about the name, which is very pretty, lovely and strong at the same time. I would not mind to name my daughter Britney (and not Brittany, I don't like this spelling).
-- sunbeam  3/6/2007
I think the name Britney is really pretty, just a little too common for me. And that is MY opinion of it.

Britney sounds like brittle. Don't like it. I'd name my kid Britain before I'd name her Britney.
-- Anonymous User  4/6/2007
I once knew a girl who was called Brytni, which I think is terrible!
-- Skye x  5/31/2007
Brittany is the only real spelling, all the others are just trashy. And it's not a wonderously beautiful name to begin with.

*Cough cough* Barf.
-- gracielou16  8/25/2007
I don't want to sound like one of those annoying, hate-filled people, but the second you name your daughter this, she's Trendy Materialistic Trash to everyone she meets. Brittany is slightly better, but sounds the same. Do you really want a child with the same name as Britney Crazy Spears?

I like this name a lot, but not because of Britney Spears. I do like Britney Spears, but now it just seems like, every person now named Britney is associated with Britney Spears, and I wouldn't want my child to be associated with anyone. I would want her to be unique. I also prefer Britney to Brittany.

I used to think this was a really cute spelling of and nicer spelling than Brittany. Of course, back in those days, I was 13 and 14. Now this spelling strikes me as cutesy and too youthful, so it doesn't have a lot of dignity and credibility factor to it. Besides, this spelling, as well as the name itself, will be associated with Britney Spears for some time to come, and Britney, like Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, is some type of whipping, erm, girl and scapegoat for the American people, as well as other nationalities, that people project all their hatred on instead of focusing on REAL enemies. Either way, the bimbo reputation should put people off the name, at least any alternative forms like this.

Normally, I hate misspelled names. But Britney is a guilty pleasure of mine. I really love it! I probably wouldn't use it, though. Britney Spears is my favorite singer, but I think naming your kids after celebrities is silly.

Britney Christian - an up-and-coming pop singer.

Under it's original form, the first bearer to speak of is the country and nation called BRITTANY (Celtic country at the west of France, at the south of Britain).

Ew, what a hideous, redneck name!
-- becca_marciano  8/28/2009
As I really like Britney Spears, I don't have anything against this name. Also I think it is trendy.
-- starz26  4/6/2010
Yuck, I hate this spelling! Britney Spears is probably to blame, and it gives off the impression of a ditzy, snobby, blonde stripper. Go with Brittany instead, please.
-- Black_X  5/5/2010
Trashiest girls' name, mostly because of Britney Spears, but also because the hard "t" makes me think of a bratty, screaming blonde devil child. Avoid like the plague.
-- MonsterGrapefruit  5/15/2011
I don't like it but I guess it's better than Brytni or Bryttny or something.
-- Anonymous User  11/9/2011
Britney Spears notwithstanding, I love this spelling. I prefer it to Brittany, which has always looked stupid to me. Britney is 'cleaner' to my eyes.
-- Anonymous User  5/26/2012
In the Fairly Odd Parents there was a minor character called Britney Britney, obviously a parody of Britney Spears.
Not really that famous but worth a mention, I guess.
-- AnastasiaE  10/14/2012
This spelling was likely influenced by that of Whitney.

Britney is the name of a preppy character in the infamous fanfic My Immortal. She was probably named after Britney Spears, who the author of the fanfic seems to really hate.
-- Buneary  5/19/2013
I personally hate the pronunciation of the name Brittany/Britney/brittney. But... I have to say I favor this spelling, even though I hate the name. It has nothing to do with Britney Spears or being 'kre8tiv', I just think it looks the best. Although it probably wouldn't be around if it wasn't for Britney Spears. I'm kind of shocked people still name their children this.
