Almost always a girls' name, Brynn is fresh and breezy and based on the Welsh male name Bryn (“hill”); it’s also a combo of Bree and Lynn. It debuted on the naming charts in the 1980s, though it was ranked low. When MTV’s “Real World” featured a contestant named Brynn in 2002, the name shot up the charts. Reality TV star Bethenny Frankel chose a spelling variation, Bryn, for her daughter in 2010.
