The feminine form of Brian first made it onto the baby-naming charts in the 1970s, but its origins go way back in time. It was coined by a British author for the epic poem, “The Faerie Queene” in 1590. Like the Irish name Brian, it means “high, noble, or exalted,” which is sure to be a confidence booster to any child! Popular alternatives include Brianna with a double N as well as Bryanna and Brianne. Elegant and soft-sounding, this name is on the radar once again thanks to the television show Grace and Frankie. The hit Netflix comedy features a lively and vibrant character called Brianna, played by June Diane Raphael.
