It's alright I guess, but I probably wouldn't use it. It's also quite common where I live. I do like this spelling better than Brianna though.

The name “Briana” (and the meaning behind it) sounds cheerful and royal to me. Meant for a special beauty who will grow up to show incredible strength.

Hi, my name Is BrieAnna. I think my name is very pretty and unique but I was wondering what the background of my name was and that's why I looked up and come to find out that my name was very popular when I was born in 1994. I had known a few people in school and in church that had the same name but spelt different. My name does have a variation form of Brianna (Irish, Gaelic, Celtic), it also means high, noble, exalted and strong. With my name being Irish, I have red hair and blue eyes, rare huh? Yeah. I never knew how my mom named me. Well, she named me after the Brie cheese and something else. Sometimes I would have a strange feeling about someone calling me other names besides redhead, Bre etc., but over time I am getting used to it, otherwise I'm okay with it. My family background goes far beyond the sliverware. I thought that was neat and very interesting to me to know such things. That triggered me to wanting to know more about my name.

My name is Briana. My mom chose to pronounce it Bre-ann-ah but everyone always ends up saying Bre-ah-nuh. It used to bother me that everyone said it the other way but I got used to it and gave up correcting people and ended up actually liking the pronunciation Bre-ahh-nuh better. Seems like most people don't seem to like my name here and that makes me sad, I think my name is very pretty but I think a lot of people think it is very overdone and therefore boring. It has always bothered me how overdone my name is, which is ironic because when my mom named me she said she had never heard the name before then, but it was very popular when I was born in 1996. Seemed like all while growing up there was always another Brianna/Briana or many other variations in every class I had so it really did get annoying and confusing. I even had a girl named Brianna in my friends group and she claimed the nickname Bree and acted snotty to me about it so I don't much care for that nickname still. As far as people thinking it is a childish sounding name I think it does sound like it belongs on a young girl or teenager but by the time all us Briana/Brianna's are older it will seem normal because it is such a common name. I don't see why anyone would still want to name their daughter Briana this day in age because it is so played out but I do think it is a beautiful name.

My name is Brianna, and I prefer this spelling of the name. To me, it seems more natural and classic than the more common spelling, "Brianna". It's interesting to me that this was the name of a character in "The Faerie Queene" poem. I wish my parents had spelled my name this way instead. :)

My name is Breawna and I like my name. I used to be annoyed by how people said and pronounced my name though. My mom's name is Beth and her middle name is Ann so people call her Beth Ann which my mom hated. She named me Breawna (Bree-Awn-A) since she didn't want people calling me Briana (Bri-An-A) since it sounds like Beth Ann. I go by the name of Bree though since it was easier for people to spell and say. Sometime around the end of fifth grade I started calling myself Bree and writing it on my papers and I only write Breawna on official or important papers. Many people say that the name Breawna is hideous and ugly which it really isn't. Breawna is a wonderful meaning with a great meaning behind it, Strong One. I will admit that Breawna is pretty popular though. But Breawna is an amazing name but I'll still respect other people's opinions about it. Just don't dismiss a name until you give it a chance.

I don't have much of a problem with the name, other than finding it boring and a bit childish. I prefer the shorter names Bree or Brynn, as even though they're just as boring, they're at least less common.

My name is Briana, and it's always been pronounced {bry-ann-uh}. It's a common misconception when it's pronounced {bree-an-ah} because it's not spelled with an "e" or made to sound that way. "Brian" with an "a". Mostly that's how you're supposed to pronounce it when you spell it this way. {bry-ann-uh}.
