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?Cecily Melody Valerie Bridget Amoret Amethyst Charlotte Rosamund Nimue Valkyrie Lenore Seraphina Flora Alma Saskia Aurora Miranda Doroteja Eliska Magdalena Helena Ravenna Elaine Rosalyn Beatrice Alice

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!Jessica Emily Faith

“I am eternally, devastatingly romantic, and I thought people would see it because 'romantic' doesn't mean 'sugary.' It's dark and tormented — the furor of passion, the despair of an idealism that you can't attain.”
