Briony. It was character in one of Tad Williams books, so I first encounter with that spelling.
I pronounce Briony bree-oh-nee and really don't care if "correct" pronunciation is Breye- un-nee. It's rare name, it's different spelling, so it could be easily pronounced wrong. As far as I know, English-born speakers pronounce half of foreign names wrong, so what's big deal about wrong pronunciation of rare name?Ludwig Beowulf Percival Raphael Orpheus Sylvan Clement Gilbert Thorin Gaspar Amaury Godfrey Peregrine Arthur Wesley Edmund Caspar Roscoe Emil Leon Robin Oberon Darcy Tristan Magnus Lucius Orlando Maximilian Erik

Briony - It's my cousin's name, so maybe I am biased. I agree Bryony somehow now feels tacky, like its spelt incorrectly (even though its the original. Personally I don't think the association has ruined it, its not a film or book that everyone has seen, plus as everyone said its such a rare name. I pronounce it Bri-uh-NEE. Lovely choice though!'Jessie' Jessica Emily Faith
