Etymology & Historical Origin - Brynn
Brynn is an Americanized version of the Welsh (Celtic) masculine name Bryn, which means ‘hill’. The name has been mainly adopted in the United States as a female name and in use since the 1980s.
Popularity of the Name Brynn
Brynn made her debut on the U.S. popularity charts for the first time in 1980 – although she didn’t see much action and even fell off the charts for most of the 1990s. Then in the late 90s, she reemerged triumphantly. The name saw a big push between 2002 and 2003 when MTV’s Real World: Las Vegas aired with a boisterous cast mate named Brynn Smith. Apparently young viewers responded to this name. Another popular reality TV star, Bethanny Frankel, recently named her baby girl Bryn (the original masculine spelling) in homage to her husband’s dead brother Bryan. The name Brynn has a gentle simplicity and understated elegance. It’s a short, one-syllable alternative to the more commonplace Lynn. And it’s also less frilly or trendy than Brianna or Brooklyn (if you like the “Br” sounding names). Brynn is a contemporary choice rooted in an older Welsh name.
