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?Anastasia Dulcie, Arthur Sylvan, Aurora Millicent, Cecily Helena, Charlotte Griselda, Cressida Blanche, Cvijeta Beatrice, David Frederick, Dorothea Giselle, Edmund Ludwig, Edward Godfrey, Emil Orpheus, Erik Amadeus, Flora Isabella, Freya Gwenllian, Gareth Florian, Juliet Kalista, Lewis Dorian, Magnus Roland, Melody Isolde, Percy Beowulf, Robin Lysander, Rosalyn Amoret, Rosamund Paisley, Seraphina Thisbe, Tristan Harley, Wesley Dimitri

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
