"My name is Breanna! (bre-ann-ah). My biggest pet peeve in the whole world is when people forget the A at the end and call me brianne! Drives me insane. A lot of people find it too long or hard to yell out & whatnot, so my family calls me Bre or Bee. I find spelling it with an E instead of an I is better :) I've always preferred 'Breana' though. My middle name is Grace so I think it's pretty!" Sep. 30, 2015:
"My name is Breanna and I love it. However, I get super annoyed when people mispronounce it. I pronounce mine like "Bree-aw-nuh," and I think it sounds awesome. I have never liked the other pronunciations or spellings.
I have been called anything from "Bre-anne-uh" to "Bre-anne" to "Bre-nna" and whatever else. I don't mind correcting people once or twice, but people still forget repeatedly.
I got so sick of my name being butchered that I decided to start going by "Bre" as a senior in high school. I would really prefer to be called mainly by my actual name, and occasionally be referred to as "Bre." However, just introducing myself as "Bre" is simpler. (I am quiet and hate to correct people when they get my name wrong).
I feel awkward introducing myself as "Bre" to older people, though, so I usually save the nickname for school and peers.
My family always calls my "Breanna," (Bree-aw-nuh) but lately, my little siblings have started calling me "Bre" more frequently, and I don't like it so much.
I like "Bre," too. However, I will always prefer Breanna.
I think Breanna sounds unique and elegant. I don't mind aging with this name; I think it sounds youthful, now. At the same time, it will suit me when I'm older, as well.
Apparently, this name peaked in the 90s, so I guess it would be unique for kids born in the current day.
I was in middle school before I ever met anyone else with a variant of this name..." Feb. 17, 2015:
"My name is Breanna and everyone pronounces it Briiiii- anna!! Just found out its supposed to be pronounced Bre-onna lol. Iv been pronouncing it wrong all my life haha" Aug. 30, 2014:
"My name's not Breanna, it's BreEanna, and I prefer it better that way. My name's unique, and not many spell it my way. And my name is pronounced Bre-AN-na, not ON na. =]" Jul. 24, 2011:
"I love the name Breanna. It's my name! :)
I hate it when people pronounce it "Bree-ah-na". I prefer it "Bre-a-na". On the contrary, it seems more feminine than Brianna. But I'm not." Apr. 3, 2011:
"my name is breanna also:)
one of the girls in my class is breanna also but she spells it like brianna and most of the teachers call her bri-anna!!
i do find it alittle stupid when people want there kids to be named breanna and spell it totaly differnt!!!" Oct. 3, 2010:
"omg my name is breanna and my teacher cant say that and some of my friend cant so i get called breezy, bre, bre bre, or breanna. even though i still love my name i wander what my name means oh well." Jan. 5, 2010:
"My name is Breanna, but I go by Bree. I love this name, because even though it may not be very unique, it leaves a lot of room for someone to MAKE it unique. I hate the Brianna spelling, because it seems WAY too feminine, which I'm not, I'm a bit of a tomboy. I wouldn't change my name for anything. :)
I put my picture above as well. :)" May. 24, 2009:
"This is also my daughter's name however it is spelled it Breeana. It is after her father whose name is Brian. I wanted to spell it Briana but he nixed that idea. Now that she is 16 we call her Bree and she goes by Bree. She had a few nicknames when she was little...the ones that have stuck are Bree Bree and Bree cheese." Feb. 21, 2009:
"This is my daughter's name. She has a twin sister named Aubree and we thought they sounded good together. Most of the time we call her Bee, Breezy or BZ. Her twin calls her na-nah. We pronouce it Bree-ah-na but most people say bree- anne-a and we just got sick of correcting everyone." Sep. 9, 2008:
"My name is Breanna and at my school this year 2 new girls came. One is named Bree and she is my friend but people usually call me Bre so i get mixed up when they say "Bree!" and they are talking to her insted of me. Also the other girl is named Brianna so now there is 3 Bree's instead of one. It makes me mad becasue I thought i was the only with the name Breanna o rthe nickname Bre." Apr. 1, 2007:
"This is my name. I was named after my dad, Brien. I really like the spelling of it as oppose to Briana. Its a cute name for a little girl but as I get older I wonder if I should start shortening it up to Breann or Bre. Everyone says it's a pretty name and it's not really all that common. I know about 3 others but they spell it differently." Jul. 19, 2005:

"My name is Breanna....I love my name very much but it gets very annoying when people don't know how to prounounce it or mispell it. I only know one other Breanna in my school and she spells hers like Brianna. I go by Bre most of the time tho :)" Jun. 30, 2009:
my name is spelt as "breanna" and i find it quite annoying when people spell it as brianna, breeanna, and ewven once breagh.
i have all combinations given to me.
However, i do like my name, and its unique spelling :)" Mar. 2, 2008:
"My name is Breanna and people also spell it Brianna i have never meet anyony with this name spelled the same as mine" Dec. 7, 2007:
"I like the structure but not the sound of the name. I have a friend named Breanna and she doesn't go by anything but that, though I often try to call her Bree. she won't respond to Bree, Bre, or Anna." Jul. 26, 2007:
"My name is Breanna, but I go by Bre most of the time. i like the name, and I've gotten a lot of compliments on it, but somehow Bre just suits me more. The only problem with that is, people often make the joke "brie? like the cheese?" and I must laugh as if I've never heard that one before. Another connection is the town in the first lord of the rings movie called "brie". However, overall, the name has been good to me." May. 22, 2006:
