It's kinda funny that people name their kids Britney after a celebrity. Brittany is beautiful but Britney is sassy. It just makes me think of a high school cheerleader. A mean cheerleader, but popular. She's the one who gets in trouble but gets out fast or makes fun of it. She's the mean girl, she cares about her grades (secretly) but it doesn't matter because she's smart. She cheats on tests even though she doesn't need to. I personally love this name, it doesn't really suit a baby but it's still really cool and unique, I don't think it's a really popular name.

I love Britney Spears.

I like this better than Brittany. It’s true to its pronunciation and has no unnecessary letters.

I like Brittany a lot more. Britney Spear's music is a bit nostalgic to me, but I don't like her name. Brittany is pretty, Britney is not in my opinion.

I never cared much for Brittany because of its "snobby cheerleader" association, but I prefer that spelling over this one.

I'm starting to like this spelling.

Britney Gallivan (b. 1985) is an American woman who set the record for most folds performed on a sheet of paper. She folded a very long piece of paper 12 times in 2002 while she was in high school.

Crazy how much it's decreased in popularity!

I don't like this name. It just sounds like a valley girl name. It is especially not suitable for a baby.
Allie_Catt  9/8/2018
I don't like the Britney Spears association. Brittany is much prettier.

Britney is a character in the TV series Totally Spies!. She is one of the spies at WOOHP.

Love the name Britney, love it. Don't care how it's spelt, still love it. It's kind of cute, sassy & serious all rolled into one. I love the sound.
ItsDeleceNotDallas  10/30/2017
To me, Britney isn't sexy. It's strong. I don't think I'm that familiar with Britney Spears herself. I usually give it to male characters on my personal list of names.

The name Britney was given to 190 girls born in the US in 2015.
HerculePoirot  6/13/2016
Britney, after the Queen of White Trash herself, Britney Spears. Definitely an awful, bitchy name.
TyrannosaurusRegina  10/4/2015
Britney is such a beautiful, cute, happy name! I love this name. :D.
― Anonymous User  7/31/2015
A very stereotypical American female name. I like it, though. I totally prefer this spelling over Brittany.
― Anonymous User  3/3/2015
A good friend of mine named her daughter "Britney" in an attempt to shorten "Brittany"... then Britney Spears came onto the scene shortly after as a coincidence. It looks misspelled and unintelligent. It's no wonder it didn't soar in popularity despite the success of Spears.

Even without Britney Spears being overrated, I still wouldn't like the name. There's something too hard about it, almost like a toothache.
Hushpuppy  1/5/2015
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.

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
This spelling was likely influenced by that of Whitney.
overtheclouds  12/1/2012
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
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
I don't like it but I guess it's better than Brytni or Bryttny or something.

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
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
As I really like Britney Spears, I don't have anything against this name. Also I think it is trendy.
starz26  4/6/2010
Ew, what a hideous, redneck name!

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).

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

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.
bananarama  7/13/2008
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.
slight night shiver  5/17/2008
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.
dreamgirl54  1/6/2008
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?

*Cough cough* Barf.
gracielou16  8/25/2007
Brittany is the only real spelling, all the others are just trashy. And it's not a wonderously beautiful name to begin with.

I once knew a girl who was called Brytni, which I think is terrible!

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 think the name Britney is really pretty, just a little too common for me. And that is MY opinion of it.
x3ThatGurlAmberx3  3/26/2007
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 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.
stormy_lovegood  2/24/2007
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.
BritneyTamber  11/28/2006
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.
― Anonymous User  11/13/2006
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?
Starla Roxanne  9/17/2006
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!
lauren neaves  6/24/2006
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 don't like this name. I prefer Brittany. It needs that 'ta' in the middle.
lindamaree  3/8/2006
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!

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.
― Anonymous User  6/7/2005
I prefer Brittany, really.
goneaway  5/16/2005
A dreadful name since Britney Spears, aka "Pop Tart", carries it. Plus, the original name, Brittany, has been mangled.
gaelruadh19  5/9/2005
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.
