Who’s Brycen? They’re the little one whose parents thought Bryson had become a bit too popular, so they respelled it without losing its lovely pronunciation. This English boy’s name is derived from Brice and is thought to translate to “son of Brice.” It may also be a variant of the Gaulish name Bricius, meaning “speckled,” a tribute to your newest freckled friend. Maybe it's the -cen suffix or the cute y smack in the middle, but Brycen feels much more modern. It's sure to appeal to your 21st-century tot.
