My name is unique especially being a black man. People think I'm white when they see my name. Reading the comments, I saw a person hated people named Brett due to arrogance...lol, now I know why I'm hated in my office. LOL!
I don't like this name, it's got bad connotations, and it's a boring sounding name. Never feminine though.

I don't like it. It sounds like "brat". I prefer Brent.

Far better than Brent.
I don't really like it. Reminds me of snobby high school jocks. A girl with this name will constantly be mistaken for a boy and will be teased.
Like the name itself, but have yet to meet a Brett that I like. A guy at school, my friend’s dad, and Kavanaugh are all Brett’s that make the name appear to be of someone who is not the greatest person to be around.
Brett Keane is a rather infamous YouTuber.
Bret Yang - a youtuber - Twosetviolin.
Like this name better on a girl, on a boy it reminds me of an annoying, slightly racist, sexist frat boy with a rich father who pretends to be religious for the sake of parents. I do not like it much as a girl name though.
I agree with the person who said this name sounds like the name of a racist, sexist frat boy. Doesn't help that there's the association with Brett Kavanaugh.

Sounds modern, yet outdated at the same time. Doesn't sound very mature or competent either, though I haven't met very many Bretts.
Dislike it.
This name still sounds really modern despite the decreasing popularity.

I'll be honest, I haven't encountered many male Brett's I've enjoyed. The women bearers of this name however, one in particular, charms me to no end. For a woman to wear a name commonly ascribed to men takes strength and individuality. Personally, I love a good female Brett.
I absolutely love the name Brett... boy or girl :)

Actor, Brett Dalton, best known for portraying Grant Ward on 'Agents of SHIELD'.
I think that Brett is a lovely name and that you need not base what you think of the name off of certain people.
My name is Brett and I'm a girl. I used to hate my name because people made fun of me and some people didn't believe me when I said that my name was Brett. But then people matured as I got older and I got lots of compliments and I started to like my name. I've only met one other girl with the name Brett and plenty of guys. Yeah it sounds like a guy's name, but I like it because it's unique. I've learned to embrace it as others should embrace their own names that they might not like.
I agree I hate unisex names and names that are rightfully male but Brett will always be Genie Francis in North and south for me, I kinda like it. Can't really see it as a guy's name anymore.
Honestly, I'd always known the name to be masculine, and was struck (and not in a negative way!) when I came across this used by a woman. For those were were making comments that it doesn't sound remotely feminine and therefore shouldn't be used in that way, it is actually a traditionally feminine name that just declined in popularity in girls and grew in boys, so it's mainly a societal thing that it doesn't sound "right" to be used as a feminine name. I never knew anyone named Brett, and so when I read The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway, the name seemed to fit the character of Lady Brett Ashley so perfectly, it made me fall in love with it and want to use it in the future.
This name is wonderful! I would probably name a son this, but right now it gives me a mental picture of my future husband--dark, wavy hair, lovely green eyes, tan skin and impressive muscles (not that looks really matter when you're blind like me). The name Brett also makes me picture him with a fun, easy-going personality, with just a touch of cockiness; someone who is a blast to be around. I'd like to find a blind person someday who can actually attract someone as amazing as all this! (Haha. Sad face).
Brett seems like a strange name to me, it is the German word for board or plank.
This is a cool name for a boy but never a girl.
I like boyish sounding names for girls, but only if the girl is really girly. I know a girl named Brette and the name is adorable on her.
I've seen it used as a nickname for Bernadette.
Unisex? I don't see anything remotely feminine about the name Brett.
This name is ugly and sounds like the name of a dumb jock. It sounds even worse on a girl. What about this name sounds remotely feminine?
Awesome name for a boy, but I really don't like it for a girl. I mean, it is so masculine. Just leave this to the boys please!
For a guy, I don't like it at all, but for a girl, it's AWESOME! And I'm not just saying that because it's my best friend's name; I had that opinion even when I was a little girl when I first heart of Brett Butler.
I have a friend (girl) named Brett, but I still can't get used to it being on a girl. For me, Brett is a guy's name.
Brett Harris, founded "The Rebelution" with his brother, Alex Harris.
I like this name, but only on a guy. It seems to me a little like naming your daughter Michael. It's your kid (/puppy/character/stuffedpony), but it just seems strange on a girl.
It's a great name for a boy born in winter, maybe because it reminds me of the children's author Jan Brett who wrote a lot of books that took place in a Scandinavian winter forest. It's a very simple name, I think I prefer it as a middle name, especially between two longer names. Jonathan Brett and Alexander Brett are two of my favorite combinations with this name.
This name is horrible for a girl.
I think it's sexy on a guy. Just on a chick, it sounds wierd.
Okay for a boy, but please - DON'T use it on a girl. Awful, horrid name for a girl. I knew one in school that was constantly mistaken for a boy, got tormented by other children and absolutely hated it.

The people who use this name on girls probably have the misguided assumption that this name is pronounced just like Britt, which it sure isn't. Others may think it's cool and groundbreaking to use masculine names on girls, but this name isn't going to sound cool on a woman, especially if she is traditionally feminine and past the age of 27.

While she also appeared on shows such as The Odd Couple, Mary Tyler Moore, The Love Boat, and The Fugitive, Somers' risque back-and-forth with Charles Nelson Reilly and Richard Dawson is what most remember her for.
This name is okay, not horrible but not great either. It's rather bland. I've never known it to be a unisex name. I've only known male Bretts.
This is the name of a character in Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises.
I knew a girl in school named Brett.
It's my last name. It's okay. Nothing special. But sometimes people say Barette or something stupid and I have to say it like 10 times or spell it out for them to understand it. Haha, but what can you do right?
For some reason when I hear this name I think of barett, the thing you wear in your hair.
Nothing wrong with the name Brett at all. It has a nice sound to it.
Brett is my husband's name. It's nice enough, but it has a really boring meaning (someone from Britain), and it's amazingly hard for people to understand over the phone! That final "t" sound just disappears, and he gets "Brad" a lot.
The person who commented above that this name means someone from Britain is mistaken - it means someone from Brittany. Since my child is not an immigrant from Brittany I won't be naming him this! I hate other people's surnames as first names. And that goes for Mason, Tyler, etc.
