    My name is Bryna lol.
    The way I pronounce it is Bree-na. or Sabrina but just without the Sa. I get A LOT of people pronouncing it Br-eye-na like Bryan, I actually do a lot of correcting lol. When we get name calls, when those calling out names get a really long pause I know it's me because they're just thinking how the hell do I pronounce this name?!

    Bryna makes me think "Brine-ah."
    This exactly. With one 'n' it definitely makes the 'y' say 'eye' but with two 'n's' it says 'inn'. That's just English pronunciation. If you want it to say Brinna then that spelling or Brynna are your only options.

    There's a little boy in the book I'm writing whose name is Brinna
