I really like this name I think it may be confused with Brian, but I still love it. I like the name Brynn Louise best.

Look, this name is unisex now, and maybe it has one extra "N" I think you'll survive.

To all you haters hating on this name; it is absolutely lovely, and amazing. I know someone with the name Brynn and she is the best most wonderful person who cares for people and loves everyone. And it is not masculine, names are changing all the time and so is the world SO CHANGE WITH IT! Come on people, adding ONE "N" isn't gonna kill any of you or any of your tiny brain cells!

I’m a female and my name is Bryn. It’s definitely not as bad of a name as some, but I live in America where the “correct” spelling is Brynn. I just let people spell my name with two n’s because I really just don’t care, lol. I kinda wish I had a normal/classic American girl name instead of a Welsh boy’s name, but oh well - it’s not like it’s going to last me my entire lifetime. Oh wait….

I love my name, Brynn, and I agree. MY DEAD DAD'S NAME WAS BRIAN, DON'T MAKE ME EMOTIONAL!

The correct and only way to spell Bryn is with one N. Bryn is Welsh for hill, a language and a word that has existed for roughly 4000 years. Now, less than 300 years ago the nation of America was born and with it too the double n version of Bryn. I am partially annoyed by this as Americans constantly ask me "Isn’t that a girl's name? (I'm a Welsh boy) but also as it is symbolic of the suppression of the Welsh language by Westminster (UK’s government) in order to squash Welsh nationalism and its people. Cymru am byth.

Brynn is truthfully such an inspiring name. I love every Brynn I meet. It's feminine and Brynns happen to be gorgeous. If you name your child Brynn they're going to be the best person you know.

Brynn has Welsh origins, as it derives from the word bryn, meaning hill.

My name is Brynn, and I’m a girl. I love my name, it makes me feel unique. A lot of people complain saying that it should be for boys and it’s spelt with one N but I believe that you should be allowed to call your child whatever you want, no?

My name happens to be Brynn and I'm female. I've enjoyed my name very much and I've never met another Brynn in my life. So to all the ladies who think it's trendy it's actually uncommon, also when I was named my mother was just looking for unique and spelt it with two N's, not a big deal. Names are botched and changed all the time. The only problem I've ever had with my name is to the uneducated people who pronounce it Brian. Honestly, it's not that hard.

My name is Brynn. I am a woman and I am 51 years old and I live in America. This is not a modern name. I was named after my uncle Brynning, which is a Norwegian name. I love my name. It has become a family name and is my niece's middle name and my granddaughter's middle name.

My name is Brynn, and I'm a boy, so it's truly unisex. Nobody really gives any thought to the masculinity that the name gives. I love the elegance and beauty that it presents, yet that strong, powerful "B" just gives it a kick. I love my name and I honestly couldn't ask for anything better!

This name is not modern or English as the name page claims. Brynn (Bryn) is a Welsh name meaning "hill" and is actually masculine.

Brynn Hartman was a model, actress, and wife of actor and comedian Phil Hartman. Tragically, she killed her husband and then herself in a murder-suicide. Very sad, she was beautiful and her husband was talented. She is one of the more famous people named Brynn for this reason.

I think Brynn is a gorgeous name. I like the simplicity of the name. I do not understand why some people have such a problem with the idea of a name being used on one gender in one country and the other gender in another country. It makes me wonder what they are so afraid of. It is not the end of the world if a boy in Whales named Bryn shares a name with a girl in the US named Brynn. They will likely never meet each other.

I like this name though no longer think it is unique. Add it to the list of other trendy names used here in the States. The fact that it is of Welsh origin and used primarily for boys in Wales and girls in the US is fine by me. Please just get over the fact that you think you picked an unusual name. You did not. Just a pretty one.

This name frustrates me so much for many reasons.
1. Why do people feel the need to change the spelling of a name from another language. It's spelled with one N not 2 (why are trendy people obsessed with adding unnecessary extra Ns, it doesn't change the pronunciation).
2. Why is this name classed as English (modern)? It's WELSH. Adding an extra N to seem cool doesn't change the origin.
3. It's not modern, it's been used for years in Wales.
4. It's certainly not a girl's name. It's so masculine. I'm from Wales, and I know multiple old men named Bryn. It sounds hideous for a girl to me.

I think people need to research this name before naming their American daughters a Welsh boys name.

A girl I know named her daughter Brynn about 14 years ago, I'll have to say at first I didn't like it much. I think it was just so different, but 2 years ago my sister had twins, a boy and a girl who is named Brynn Alexandra, and I simply love it! It has so grown on me and it fits her so well! We call her Brynnie. She's so sassy and I love it!

My name happens to be Brynn, and I happen to get comments on how beautiful my name is quite often. My mom named me after the actress Brynn Thayer, and knew she was going to name me that from the moment she heard it. I'm only 18 and although there aren't many people my age with that name, which I like because it is unique, the name is becoming quite popular. It originated as a Welsh name for a male, but became very modern in America by adding the extra "n". I find American styles and European styles of names very different, however I respect both. I have had many people / teachers / trainers name their children Brynn because they loved my name so much. I have never heard anything negative about my name, and I personally enjoy how unique it is.

My daughters' name is Brynn and I think it's the most beautiful name for a girl. It's a strong name yet very pretty, which describes my daughter. I'm not even sure where I heard the name Brynn. But as soon as I heard it I knew it had to be her name. She gets a lot of compliments on her name, I think in part because it's different, but again, beautiful!

According to Cleveland Kent Evans, the original popularity of Brynn as a female name in the USA seems linked to the career of actress Brynn Thayer while she appeared as the character Jenny Vernon on the daytime soap opera One Life To Live between 1978 and 1986.

I find this name to be a nice name for a girl or boy. It is NOT cheap, and just because it's modern doesn't make it ugly or harsh. I like the name Brynn a lot!

Surprisingly, I love this name. I usually detest made-up names that sound like they belong in a paperback sci-fi novel. This one, however sounds classy and simple- like a combo of Brooke and Winnie.

It's sophisticated without trying to be :) Brynn's growing on me...

This 'name' looks like a tacky masculine combination of Brian and Flynn. Although the spelling Bryn is much nicer, I would never consider using either name on a real person.

To me, adding a superfluous "n" to a masculine name does not make it feminine.

As a rule, any name listed on this website as "English (Modern)" is cheap, tacky and low class. Brynn seems to be no exception.

Although this name may sound masculine to Brit/Welsh ears, as an American I find it to be quite feminine and lovely. It's soft, fresh and modern, not harsh at all. I've met a couple toddlers named Brynn and they are adorable.

This name has a harsh sound to it that I don't like. It is also one of those modern, trendy names that make me gag. Bronwyn is much better--in sound and in meaning--if you feel the need to go in this direction.

I have always loved the name Brynn, so much that it's my daughter's name. Everyone I meets thinks her name is so pretty. When I first picked it, my mother-in-law said, "I hate that name, I'm not going to call her that!" But now she loves it, too. And we have yet to meet another Brynn.

"Bryn" and "Brynn" are both Welsh in origin and mean the same thing. One is almost certainly a variant of the other.
