"Yes, that is my name is Brea. My pronunciation is Bree-uh. Lot of people call me Bria because it sound alike name. Also, sometime they ask if my name would be short. It is my full name. I mostly call Bree." Feb. 8, 2017:
"People always put an I in my name I hate that and they keep asking is my name short for anything. Noooo.. My mother named Brea that's just it no other letters included. Besides that I like my name isn't not long." Feb. 27, 2015:
"This is my middle name, and I have used it as my common name for about 15 years. It's short and seet like me. It's uniqueness is what I love. Also, for the record.. I pronounce it (Bre - with the "e" as in "eat".. like brie cheese). If you have this name you have to resound to the fact that it will be mis-pronounced and mis-spelled.. but that usually makes for conversation! Enjoy!
ps- I hate the (Bree-uh) pronouncing.. but like the (Bray-uh) as was normal used when I lived in Puerto Rico with spanish influence." Jun. 5, 2008:
"I named my daughter Brea, when she was born in 2003. I loved it for how unique it was, allowing me to give her a name in which she would be able to create her own definition of it.
I don't pronounce it Bree-uh, though. I pronounce it as Bray-uh. I contemplated spelling it Breya, but decided on the shorter version. I love it, it fits her perfectly, and people are always complimenting on how pretty it is. (Just like her!)" Sep. 7, 2007:

"my name is Brea, pronounced Bree-uh, well my nickname is. it's short of Aubrey." Jul. 13, 2014:
"My name is Brea pronounce Bre-uh. I love it because it's unique and I've only met one person with my name while I was on vacation one year. The only thing that annoys me is when people pronounce it wrong. It's ok to call me Bre as a nickname as long as you know my full name. In school whenever teachers would pronounce it wrong I just started writing my name as Bre-uh on my papers. They soon got the hint. :)" Mar. 26, 2013:
"My name is Brea pronounced Bre-ah. Being a child I hated my name cause it wasn't common it was "weird" but now being a senior in high school I'm proud of my name, how often do you hear it I'm the only girl in school with my name so when they say my name 5 heads don't turn at once for example having the name brittany Ashley nicole etc and the meaning if the name suits my personality so my parents blessed me with a very unique and special name" Jan. 14, 2013:
"i remember i asked a girl at my school if she likes my name and she said no becuz it is unique and another person said reminds me of cheese! and i get so mad so i made fun of their names and had to sit recess!" Jun. 27, 2010:
"My Friend has this name,but it is pronounced like Bree,the a is silent i geuss." Jun. 23, 2010:
"Brea is my name pronounced "bree-uh". I hated it as a kid because of what it rhymed with but I like it now and get allot of compliments on it. I never have gone by "bree"
I also get the comment "oh like the cheese"? I get so mad, what kind of stupid comment is that anyways. If someone's name is Mark do they say "oh like the Marker" or what if their name is Dick, lol?" Dec. 30, 2009:
"Brea is my sister-in-laws name and she hates it. I like it, but then again, i don't have to live with it. She said people look at her weird when she tells them her name and they always ask how to spell it. Then she gets the question "like the cheese?"" Feb. 21, 2008:
"Hah. My name is Brea. Said like Bree-uh. Its not short for anything. I love it =]" Aug. 23, 2007:
