Brynleigh is a modern girl's name with a medieval feel. It shares the ever-popular -leigh suffix of names like Kayleigh and Raleigh, which means "meadow" or "pasture," while the start, bryn, is a Welsh word that means "hill" or "mount." When you combine these, you get the rather poetic meaning of "meadow on the hill," which baby can use as a reminder to appreciate the simple beauty of the world around them. Brynleigh can also be used as an alternative spelling of the English name Brinley which means "burnt meadow," making it a stark reminder to cherish and protect the earth.
