    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?

    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!

    I prefer Bryony. Whenever we're talking a floral name, I prefer the way the plant is actually spelt. Lily over Lilly or Lillie, Bryony over Briony.
