    Having lived a life with the name Bryony, everyone always tells me how rich it sounds and looks. I also know a Briony - she doesn't get the same reactions when people are looking at a piece of paper with the names on.

    The classiest spelling is always the traditional spelling! Definitely Bryony.
    This is what I was gonna say! Always stick to the traditional spelling if you can.

    I like Bryony. I think it is lovely! I had it on my own list, but hubby vetoed it.
    Anxiously awaiting the arrival of Luther's little brother November 2015!

    Bryony is the original spelling so I would go with that one unless your surname has y's in it too. I do think Briony looks better on the written page. I say choose Bryony with reluctance as I have a strange aversion to y's in names but what can I do in this case?
    All the best,
    Mischa.
