  • "My name is Brillana pronounced "Briyanna" (It is spanish for Brillant or shiny). I did come across one other person who had the same spelling as mine. I wonder if there are any "Brianna" or other spelling derivatives that are older than me. I am 41. I never met anyone with my name until I was in my late teens. My dad came up with my name and spelling himself. He never met anyone named "Brianna" when he named me. When I was growing up, people would frequently tell me what a beautiful name I had, and if they had a daughter they would name her "Brianna"" Apr. 26, 2014: Report as inappropriate
