It's more like Bry-len or bree AH hen (in a Welsh accent). It's kinda hard to say correctly.

Is it pronounced Bree-uh-lyn or Bree-al-en?

Welsh names are my absolute favorite! This name is so pretty and can definitely be used to honor a family member with the syllable Bri or the name Allen!

I love Welsh names, flower names, and the Bri syllable, so this is currently near the very top of my list :3

I really like the sound and meaning of this name, but I don't like how made-up it looks... although that's probably a bit snobby of me :/
