I have a character in a book I'm writing named Briella and she goes by Brie most of the time. I love this name and The meaning especially with the plot of the book!

I feel like I prefer Briella to Gabriella, at least as a middle name. Brielle or Briella has amazing mn potential for me. I jist worry it loses too much of its religious connotation? (As thats someyhinf that I like in a name)

My daughters name is Brielle and I love it! I think it's a beautiful name and get compliments on it all the time. Plus I love that you don't hear it all the time.

You don't have to apologize. There are names that I hate as well, but that's just a personal preference.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


You're quite right, Brit. There are way worse names out there and Briella still has good things about it. In fact, when I first heard of it, I kind of liked it. It's still not the best name in my opinion, but I'd like to apologize for my previous rash comment.

Guest Says:


Briella or Brielle is FAR better than some of the names that parents give their kids! I happen to like Briella and wouldn't even consider it a version of Gabriella or Gabrielle.

Theodora_Phoenix Says:


I hate this name so much.I have no idea why so many people have a problem with the nickname Gabby. It's a cute and normal-sounding nickname. Gabriella is one of the most beautiful names there is. There's no reason to chop it up for this lame excuse that is Briella.

rabia_chrisden Says:


For me this name is an evolution. I started liking the name Brie then I loved the name Bria until Gabriella was appealing and then I loved the name Brielle but then I loved the sound of Briella. Out of all those names mentioned I love the name Briella.
