This would be a nightmare for a child to live with in elementary school, with everyone mispronouncing and misspelling it.

This name actually isn't that bad in terms of pronunciation and such (in the English-speaking world). Most people, even little kids, know that Sonja is SOHN-ya, so anyone named Brynja shouldn't have too much difficulty.
And I like this name, actually! It sounds quite pretty.

I love this name! It's gorgeous! Pronounced BRIN-yah.

How pretty!

This is actually not just a word in Old Norse, it is the word in modern Swedish for chain(ring)mail armor - ringbrynja.

Other than that, it's a really nice name.

We have both a Sonja and a Brynja. Most Scandinavians know how to pronounce both but it's not such a "nightmare" in school. You just tell people how to pronounce it and as you get older you can be glad for something unique and pretty.
