Meaning:descendant of Brice
Who’s Brycen? He’s the boy whose parents thought Bryson had become a little too popular, so they respelled it without losing the pronunciation. The name was derived from Brice and made its first appearance on the baby-name charts in 1998. Maybe it's the "cen" suffix or the cute "y" smack in the middle, but Brycen feels more modern than Brice—no wonder it ranks much higher in the ratings than its ancestor.
