Meaning:High, noble, exalted
If baby has Irish roots, you'll undoubtedly be sifting through many respellings of Brian. Arguably the cutest, Brienna is a girl's name meaning "high," "noble," and "exalted." This epic namesake dates back to the 10th century and celebrates the victories of Brian Boru, a much-loved king of Ireland. In a long campaign ending with the Battle of Clontarf, the king was able to liberate Ireland from Viking rule. Brienna is also suspiciously close to the Game of Thrones character, Brienne. As a knight and warrior of House Tarth, she never failed to impress those who underestimated her skills! Your little one is guaranteed to be just as unstoppable!
