The last name I can come up with for the girl's list, would love to know what people think please.

Love it.

(and there are only about 3 girls names in the world I like so it must be very good wink)

I love it! But then it's the name of one of my best friends so I'm a bit biased.

I like it too.

I know a lovely Bryony - who is grown up - and really like the name.

I like it.

I like it-I think it is one of those names that doesn't date.

I think its a lovely name, wouldn't mind pinching it for myself if I ever have a daughter! That or Briar-Rose!

I like it. It's kind of cool and dateless. Not a pretty name exactly, but it's classic in a celtic way (?) and it's elegant rather than feminine.

It's a nice name

Sorry,... I do not like Brian/Bryan... and Bryony is just the feminine. It may get shorten to Bry, which jars a little on the ear for a girl.

I secretly like Briony.

Bryony looks a bit weird but the sound is nice, either way.

Alexa808 Tue 26-Aug-08 07:47:01

Secretly because it reminds me of calluous, vacant American bitch that tried to dig her claws into my then DP -unsuccessfully. Gave her a good boot kick all the way back home grin

Bryony isn't the masculine form of Bryan, it is the name of a hedgerow plant. I think it is a beautiful name.

We have a freind called Brioni, and dd2 calls her "Brownie"

She is the coolest person I know.

one fo my ex-bosses is called bryony and she was lovely, and also one of our best friends children is bryony and shes a lovely sweet teenager now, so in my experience girls caleld bryony grow up to be lovely people. grin

Really, really nice name.

There's a Bryony Toogood who is the Fashion Editor/assistant/person in Vogue, have always loved the name ever since..
