What’s In A Name…..

Bryan…..

The given name Bryan is a variant of the given name Brian. This name is thought to be derived from an Old Celtic language word meaning ” Whiner or dumb”.
The spelling of the given name Bryan was influenced by the surname Bryan. This surname has several different origins. One origin of the name is from an Anglo-Norman name,de Brionne,[1] derived from either of two places called Brionne in the north of France—one is Brionne, in Eure; the other is Brionne in Creuse. Another origin of the surname is from the name which was brought to England and Ireland by the Breton followers of the Normans, who invaded in England in the 11th century. This name is thought to be derived from the same Old Celtic language element as the modern given name Bryan. When the Anglo-Normans invaded Ireland in the 12th century, this name was confused with the native Irish name Brian. The ‘i’ in “Brionne” is pronounced like a ‘y’, and as a result, as the names got confused, the y emerged.
