Gender: F Meaning of Briana: "strong, virtuous, honorable" Origin of Briana: Feminine variation of Brian Briana's Popularity in 2014: #419

Spelled this way, Briana was coined by Edmund Spenser for his great literary work, The Faerie Queene, which gives the now-overexposed name a far classier pedigree than it's usually credited with. But spelling variations Breana, Breanna and onward are popular too, though feel more invented -- probably because they are.
