Heard it mentioned recently on here and wondered what people's thoughts are? I only know one Bryony who is 15

Ropsleybunny Wed 11-Oct-17 08:02:58

Lovely and I don't know any.

ChocolateCrunch Wed 11-Oct-17 08:07:07

Always liked this name. I know 2, both adults.

I think it's beautiful! One of my sisters had a friend called Bryony, she'd be in her late 20s now.

I know three my age (early 30s) but none younger. I think it's a lovely name.

I love it. Reminds me of the book Atonement. Although I can't help but reading 'Bryan' in it which puts me off slightly.

TonicAndTonic Wed 11-Oct-17 08:15:53

I really like it!

It always feels like a very 'hard' name, quite 'big' to live up to for some reason.

It doesn't seem like the sort of name you could coo at a baby, that's for sure.

I know a Briony (and think I prefer that spelling, looks less like Bryan) who is her early 20's, and a 15yrs old.

Its a nice name that isn't used loads.

I had it on my list but DH hated it!

ILikeyourHairyHands Wed 11-Oct-17 08:42:39

I like it, DD was very nearly a Bryony but we changed to something very similar atvthe last minute.

LittleHearts Wed 11-Oct-17 09:04:13

I like it very much. I think it is underused, and would like to use it for a dd. I like both spellings too.

Threeandabit Wed 11-Oct-17 09:12:03

It's a beautiful name. I actually suggested it on a thread yesterday.

FfionFlorist Wed 11-Oct-17 09:16:00

I think it is a little dated, a bit like Megan and Nicole but it is still a good solid name. Slightly prefer Briony, less American.

DandySeaLioness Wed 11-Oct-17 09:17:31

a lovely name and I don’t know any Bryonies either.

Sophronia Wed 11-Oct-17 09:45:43

It’s a bit dated and makes me think of Brian. I’m not keen.

Marcipex Wed 11-Oct-17 10:16:20

I know its a flower name, but unfortunately sounds like a male name with y tagged on. Keviny Martiny etc

Ttbb Wed 11-Oct-17 10:19:18

All bryonies that I have known have been blonde and fat without exception. Very odd coincidence. I just associate it with white Australians tbh, they are the only people I have ever known to use that name.

PandaCat Wed 11-Oct-17 10:27:29

I'm not a huge fan of it. There is one in my 5yr olds class

Glumglowworm Wed 11-Oct-17 10:28:37

I really like it and only know one (late teens)

AnyaMoondial Wed 11-Oct-17 12:33:26

It's a great name. I prefer the Briony spelling too.

Sugarpiehoneyeye Wed 11-Oct-17 12:39:25

It's lovely, I too prefer the spelling Briony.

I really really don't like it. Nor do I like Briony. It's an ugly name imo

Dustbunny1900 Wed 11-Oct-17 14:55:22

Love love looooovvveee that name. Don't know any bryonys and never have met one in real life.
I'm really into both Blythe and bryony right now
