I find the connotation of having to do with thorns off putting to say the least. I don't like this name much for either gender. One of the supreme court justice's name is briar spelled Breyer. I would go with that spelling for a boy. I would prefer Brian or Brye on its own. I know a Bry in real life.

Ooh! I quite like it. I can see it going either way gender-wise, but it's a very solid name, strong connotation. A boy could wear it handsomely, I think.

I grew up with a guy named Briar, so it's always been a boys name for me.Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns. ~George Eliot
