  • "Hi I'm brenna Anderson and I have been living with this problem for 13 years. My chorus teacher accidentally wrote my name as Brianna because I have a Brianna in my class and we we're sitting right next to each other hint we are friends. I have been called ALOT of different names Sincerely, Brenna the most uncommon name." Nov. 5, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "I?ve always enjoyed having a unique name even though most people I meet don?t know how to pronounce or spell it. It?s a fun name and it?s very pretty. The definition in most languages is raven. Like the bird, Brenna?s are beautiful, meek, quiet, and brave." Sep. 2, 2019: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Bryna (pronounced brin?nuh) but gets mispronounced as Brenna fairly often. It takes a couple of back and forths when meeting someone new for them to get my name right, but that doesn?t bother me. Just part of having a unique name. I appreciate that it?s different enough but definitely not a weird name! I get compliments on it too!" Sep. 10, 2018: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brenna and my teachers tend to get it wrong a lot. I get called Brianna, Brenda, and Brennan. Being a Brenna is hard when your young with is probably way my friends call me by my last name a lot, but I love my name uncommon, unique, and fun!" Dec. 2, 2017: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brenna and other then people always calling me a different name even though it's pronounced how it is spelled, it can be annoying but I love my name. I was once told my freshmen year of high school by a classmate that my parents spelled my name wrong, people can be really sheltered and most of the time just mean or inconsiderate. I am always interested in meeting other Brenna's because i don't often hear the name nor meet one. I currently know 3 other Brenna's, I often wonder what middle names Brenna's have because of how uncommon it is." Oct. 13, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brenna and for years I've been called the wrong name. When I was in the third grade, I was actually given a detention because my substitute throught I was lying about my name! She completely thought my name was Emma and was convinced I had changed my name tag as a prank. Sadly, I still had to serve the detention, but it was totall insane. I've heard the weirdest forms of my name as I've grown older and almost think people slaughter my name on purpose (I'm kidding, of course). I've met a grand total of two girls named Brenna in my life -- one being my friend's younger sister and the other being a girl I met online! I get so excited when I see other girls named Brenna on Instagram or other social media outlets. Also when I see girls named Brenna on TV (American Idol, America's Next Top Model, The Voice). It's like I want to befriend every Brenna I come across. I love my name so much, but it can't be just me that hates the nickname "Bren"? - Brenna Lee" Apr. 29, 2015: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brenna, and I have the same problems with people calling me "Brenda" or "Breena" or "Brianna". But when I was called "Jenna" once, I really had to wonder. But I put up with people mispronouncing my name because I love it! I get comments all the time about how people think I have a beautiful name, and I wouldn't change it for the world! I've only met two other Brennas in my entire life, but it makes me feel unique in a wonderful way." Oct. 3, 2011: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brenna. I always get called Brenda, sometimes as a mistake but sometimes just to wind me up because they don't think its a real name. And everyone always spells it brena, which is just ignorant grammar because that would pronounce 'breee-na'. Its very upsetting when i'm called brenda and brennan which actually happened in an interview once someone put her right after calling me brenda and she actually started calling me brennan. its embarrassing. but i love my name. i just have to be extra clear when pronouncing it."

I also met another Brenna that mwas in my Biology Class as a Freshmen in High School. It was cool because what was the chance of having 2 Brennas in the same school, same grade, and same CLASS in a school of 2500 students??? Now, whenever we see each other we say 'hey, Brenna!' It's still getting some use-to because it feels like we're talking in third-person!" Nov. 12, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Brenna. When I was young I hated it and wanted a name that everyone else had like Jennifer or Rachel. Now I realize how awesome it is to have a unique name. I've met 3 other Brennas my whole life. I go crazy (but generally keep it to myself) when people pronounce it Brenda or Briana. My thought is "did you see a "d" or an "a" anywhere in the middle of my name?" Oh well, I should get over it since it is much better than those names anyway. -Brenna Abbey" Jan. 24, 2009: Report as inappropriate

  • "My daughter's name is Brenna Allyson. She too gets called Breena and Breanna and Breanne. It drives me bonkers. It's clearly not Breanna and I just cannot stand that name. No offense to anyone.

It fits a brown haired blue eyed two year old pistol and i think it will fit a bulldog CEO :)" Feb. 21, 2008: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name's Brenna (pronounced just how it looks:BREN-nah) and I love it. Never met another Brenna, though sometimes I hear "My new niece is named Brenna!", stuff like that. I get "Brenda" around three times a day (no exaggeration), but it stopped bothering me a long time ago. I also get Breena,Brianna,Bretta, and even Greta. Although I love my name, I go by "Bren" a lot to make it easier on people." Jan. 11, 2007: Report as inappropriate

  • "I have an usual spelling of this name: Bryna (1985) but it sounds just like "Brenna" or "Brennah." It used to be misprounced when I was in school all the time, but professors tend to get it correct, well, except when they think it's a typo and that my name is actually "Bryan" but that's not the point. I really like my name, and my spelling. Although I've met other "Brennah"s the only other woman I met that is a "Bryna" was a nice black lady who prounced her name very differently. She said it as "Brye-nah" with a harder "I" sound. That and "Breena" and "Brenda" are the most common errors that I hear when I tell someone my name. My mother is the only person to call me Bryn ("Brin") but I prefer the full "Bryna." To this day, my grandpa still calls me Brenda sometimes. lol" Jan. 24, 2006: Report as inappropriate
