Brynn is a boy's name that is Welsh and means from the hill. It wasn't originally a girl's name. My son is 41 yrs old and was named for a male friend of my husband.

The original spelling, Bryn, is the spelling that is unisex and would have a blue page. Brynn is overwhelmingly used for girls.

Not a fan of Brynn...rather boring, or the made-up additives of Brinley, Brynleigh. Most "B" names are unpleasant to me.

My mother originally wanted to name me Montana Jade. I consider myself incredibly blessed that my father put his foot down on that one! After much debate, my folks agreed on Brynn Colette. Sure, people have mispronounced my name my whole life, but I love it. Even with its growing popularity, Brynn is still considered a unique name, and I receive the best compliments on my name all the time.
