Thoughts needed please.

Mrskeats Fri 07-Jul-17 23:48:39

Thoughts? You are joking

ghhpo Fri 07-Jul-17 23:49:53

Why would I be joking? confused

Mrskeats Fri 07-Jul-17 23:52:28

Because it's awful.
Why can't kids just have normal names anymore? It's like a wacky name contest
And people won't know how to spell or pronounce it

VivienneWestwoodsKnickers Fri 07-Jul-17 23:53:29

Goady.

ghhpo Fri 07-Jul-17 23:53:56

I suppose 'normal' names are subjective hmm by normal names do you mean popular, well used names? Because Bricius is a name. So I assume you mean names that are used frequently.

Terrible

His namesake priest is nothing to be proud of - what appeals to you about it?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Fri 07-Jul-17 23:55:31

How is it pronounced?

ghhpo Fri 07-Jul-17 23:55:56

I like the name...? I like the sound, etc.

I went to school with a Brice, he was African. Is it an African name? I've never come across it since. It's not to my taste but it might be from the OP's culture /background.
OP - it's not a common name in the U.K so you might get some funny responses.

Is it an old name? It looks old Scots or Irish?
But yeah, he will forever be telling people how to spell it. And Brice sounds like an 80s business man from a John Hughes movie.

Bricius almost like britches?

SuperBeagle Fri 07-Jul-17 23:59:29

I know people named Bryce.

Bricius is awful though. I would pronounce it "Brishus". Horrid.

PatriciaHolm Fri 07-Jul-17 23:59:58

Given that link appears to offer 3 different ways to pronounce it, I'm not sure it helps!

Why not just go with Brice and save the poor kid the pain?

DPotter Sat 08-Jul-17 00:00:33

Don't like the sound of it myself - too harsh on the ear. And too be honest it does come across as a tad pretentious.
you could find the nickname from school onwards is Bri and I have always hated the name Brian because of that nickname.

I also have a sense of deja vu about this.............

MsPassepartout Sat 08-Jul-17 00:01:23

That link isn't working for me.

So... is it pronounced like Brick-ee-us or like Br-eye-see-us?

Is it Roman?

MeltingSnowflake Sat 08-Jul-17 00:03:09

Sorry, I don't love it. I know a Brice, which is common in the US, but I don't like that either!

ghhpo Sat 08-Jul-17 00:06:28

Genuinely not trying to be goady 😩😕 I just like the name.

I pronounce it Br - eye - see - us! It's an old name yes.

shambolicgreenfox Sat 08-Jul-17 00:16:49

Hmmm...Bryce is OK.

Justhadmyhaircut Sat 08-Jul-17 00:19:19

I like the sound of fireworks but wouldn't call a baby Rocket or Banger. . .

Amee1992x Sat 08-Jul-17 00:39:27

Prefer Bryce.

WhatToDoAboutThis2017 Sat 08-Jul-17 00:46:27

I'm sorry but it really is truly awful.

Topseyt Sat 08-Jul-17 03:34:03

Sorry, but it is awful. Poor child will have a lifetime of having to explain it.

I just wouldn't. I would cringe upon hearing it.
