"My husband's name is Brian. Mine is Diane, and we combined our names back in 1982 when no one had ever heard of that girl's name before to get Brianne. And yes, a LOT of people say it wrong to this day. Pronounced BREE-ANNE!" Jul. 18, 2019:
"My name is Brianne as well and I love my name but sometimes people get it wrong and say Brianna so I just make it easier and go by Bri instead" Jul. 28, 2017:
"We named our daughter Brianne because we thought it was a beautiful, rare, and unique name. Already, people get it wrong all the time and other people that should know her really well by now will slip up and say Brianna. No matter... but it does suck that we can't ever find her name embossed on things like cups, key chains, etc.... Still worth it though. We named our son Brooks and they are cute together."

"My name is Brianne. I love my name. Growing up I never met anyone with the same name. In school I was always called Brianna and Brian. Even the english teachers. There is no a at the end of my name. It made me mad." Nov. 12, 2010:
"I have met a few girls with my name, but nobody older than me (29). I go by "Bri" (Bree)now, all my friends have called me that for the past several years, and it has stuck. It is also easier for people to remember. It gets really old to have people call you Brandy or Britney! Especially when they keep saying the wrong name over and over in conversation, ugh. Sometimes I wish my name was something simple, like Sarah or Mary." Feb. 25, 2009:
"thats my name and i love it cause it is very different then brianna or briona" Nov. 24, 2007:
"I have a friend Brianne, I had never seen or heard it before, other then my cousin Brianna (but that is pronounced Bree-arna, even though that SHOULD be spelt Briana, and Brianna should actually be pronounced Bree-anna) my aunt must have got it wrong.
Anyway Brianne is really lovely!" May. 24, 2007:
"My name is Brianne. Everyone i know pretty much pronounces it wrong. Its either (BREE-ONA) or (BREE-ANNA). I just want to be like its (BREE-ANN). The 'e is silent but everyone pronounces it as an 'a...but its not said that way. Also other people call me brian. I'm deffinantly not a guy. I have never meet anyone with my name, i hope i would because that would be cool. My mom has talked to a salesperson with my name said the same way, but i never have." Jun. 12, 2005:

"My name is Brianne, but I literally get called Brianna by everyone- but the reason my parents didn't name me Brianna in the first place is that my last name has two A sounds as well, so my full name just had too many As and didn't sound nice. So after high school where I got to apply for university with a legal and a prefered name I go by Brie and its so much easier. I much prefer the odd Brie Cheese joke over being called Brianna 24/7" Feb. 7, 2017:

"My name is Brianne as well and I have always loved my name all my life but I have always been called Brianna or Brian and forget finding keychains or things with our name spelled correctly.Beings everyone gets it wrong and spelling Bri as a nickname people have always said Bri as in Brian so I have spelled it Bree since I was a young teenager that way people always get it right. But even with all of this I still have always loved my name." Jun. 17, 2019:
"This is my name and almost every time I meet someone new they pronounce it as Bree-Anna rather than Bree-Ann. I have to clarify every single time someone asks me what my name is. A lot of times I get compliments for my name, I think it is my best quality." Oct. 11, 2013:
"My name is Brianne. In elementary school, most of my teachers learned English as a second language so they pronounced the first syllable of me name the way you pronounce the first three letters of "bride." I got so used to it that I accidently called myself that while correcting a teacher. other times, people would spell my name "Breann" instead of what it really was. Sometimes I would if it would be better just to change my name..." May. 27, 2012:
"My name is Brianne. I get called Brianna all the time, so I go by Brie. (Yes, like the cheese.. I get that constantly too!) I never liked my name when I was younger, but after 20 years, a name kinda grows on a person." Sep. 27, 2011:
"My name is Brianne. (Bree-Anne) Growing up I have mostly been called Brian in school by both new and substitute teachers. As I got older and people became more familiar with it, the mispronunciation happened less often. I do often get called Brianna (Bree-Anna) when I meet new people. I always find myself with that my mother would have spelled my name BreAnn but now that I put that in writing I have changed my mind." Jan. 30, 2009:
"I prefer Brianna myself, but Brianne is still a great blend of Bri and Anne -- two lovely names molded into one just like mine! Ann Marie" Jul. 26, 2007:
"My name is Briann. its Prounounced just like the other ways to spell ( Bree-Anne ) excepy my mom thought that the e at the end was odd so she liked it the was it was. if people look at my name they call me brian. my name got announced at school and i was called briann. everyone knows me but it was really odd. i never met anybody with my name so i think that unique." Jan. 16, 2006:
"My name is also Breayne (Bree-Ann) but the "y" really throws people off so I also get "Bree-On" and Brian as well. I like to think that I do not look like a Brian. I have met a couple of Brianne's but I have yet to meet someone that spells their name the same way that I do." Jun. 8, 2005:
"My name is Brianne. Many people say my name wrong and never learn to get it right. Some people (mostly substitutes at school) say it as Brian. Others will call me (BREE- ON) or (BREE-ONA). But I've never met anyone with the same name." May. 31, 2005:
