    *shudder*.

    London, Ireland, Bristol, Cumbria, Kendall, York, Britain are all too close to home for me, literally.

    I prefer Britannia.

    I know a girl named Britton and it never struck me as odd or over the top. I do think it feels masculine though.

    I'm going to go against the grain here and say I think it can be cute! I have friends who have a friend named Britain (Asian girl in case you're wondering) and while watching her play water polo, I felt that her name really fit her! I can see how people could find it odd by just trying to imagine it on someone without a real-life Britain to refer to.

    I don't like it.
    It's too much imo, especially if you're not British, or have no ties to Britain.

    I don't like country names on people much personally, I'd be very unimpressed if I met a Britain who had no ties to Britain.

    There's also Brietta nn Britt.

    Immediately I thought it was a bit much but it is growing on me.
