I really like the name Bryn for a girl. I have known a couple of people named Bryn, one was a boy and the other a girl. The name I really like is Brynlee which can also be spelt Brinlee.

Since the 1880's Bryn for a boy hasn't appeared on the top 1000 list. For a girl it appeared on the top 1000 list in 2004 where it ranked 914.

A boy I know is called Bryn, but it's shortened from Brynsley.

I knew a little girl with this name, and she was the most adorable little thing! I am also not certain whether her name was spelled Bryn or "Brynn". My favorite variant of this name is Brynley or Brynleigh. Very unique name!

Hey there I personally love the name as my name is Brynley, and I am an Australian male. A friend of mine also recently used the name for his son.

I know two people with this name, and they are both boys. I think this name is really cute and sounds really masculine on a guy. Although this name is interchangeable, I think Bryn and Brin are boys names, Brynn is a unisex name and Brynne is a girls name.

I know a little girl named Taylor Bryn, before I met her I'd never heard that name before. Now I think it's really cute, it fits her well because she so adorable.

It makes me think of the word "brine".

I love the variation of this name as Bryna. Beautiful and unique.

I plan to name my future son this, to keep the family's Welsh heritage alive. I think it's a very strong sounding name, solid too.

Lovely name, but I prefer the spelling Brynn. It looks prettier and more complete. I think the spelling Brin works bewst for males, and Bryn and Brynn for females. I don't believe in the magical feminizing power of the mighty 'y' like so many young people today, but somehow Bryn looks more feminine than Brin. It's a great name for both sexes.

There's a love song by the band Vampire Weekend called Bryn. A lovely name.

This name is so manly. Have you ever SEEN Bryn Terfel?

Bryn is a male name through and through.

This name can also be derived from Old English, where it means "flame, fire".

I know someone on the Welsh border with this name (a MALE, as it were.) It's nice enough. Suits a little boy, a teenager and an adult, and an elderly man. Ages nicely. Any girls called Bryn in Wales will get funny looks, though. Just a warning.

Probably one of the most unimaginative Welsh names out there for boys. 'Have you met my son, "Hill"?' And the idea that such a butch name could be used for girls? Only in America! :-P.

I only like this name because it is in Son by Lois Lowry, which is a GREAT book.

This is a VERY cute name. I love the name Bryn! Imagine siblings called Bryn, Wyn, Finn, Flynn and Lynn? Aww! ^_^

My daughter was named Bryn(born 8/7/13). I was going for the Icelandic variation of Brun(Hilda).

This is a MALE name! There are plenty of lovely female Welsh names for your daughter.
