Brianna is a girl’s name of Irish origin, meaning “high,” “noble,” and “exalted.” This name is a derivation of Briana, the feminine version of Brian. Dating back to the 10th and 11th centuries, Brian Boru was Ireland’s most highly-regarded high king, who liberated the nation from centuries of Viking rule. This honorable figure can inspire Brianna to find her own inner strength and could see her take a leading role in life. This powerful addition might give you a few sleepless nights, but all in the name of becoming a strong and independent little girl.
