high, noble, exalted
The feminine form of Brian first made it onto the baby-naming charts in the 1970s, despite it being coined by a British author for the epic poem “The Faerie Queene” in 1590. Like Brian, the name means “high, noble, exalted,” which is sure to be a confidence booster to any child. An alternative spelling, Brianna, rates much higher in terms of popularity than Briana, but both have the same lively, elegant feel.
