Meaning:High, noble, exalted
Briane is a gender-neutral name of Irish origin. It’s a variant of Brian, which may derive from the Irish word brí, meaning “hill.” As a result, it’s thought to mean “high, noble, exalted.” An enduringly popular name in Ireland and abroad thanks to former Irish High King Brian Boru, Brian has inspired many variants. These include Brien, Bryan, Brianne, Brienne, Breanna, Brianna, and many more. Briane simply adds an “e” to the end, making it a good option if you want a spelling that’s not too different from the original.
