"Yes, Bryn is traditionally a boy's name in Wales but, like so many names - Robin, Jordan, Madison, and my own, Leslie - in the US it's primarily a female name.
I've always wanted to give my child a good Welsh name. Now, it seems like everyone's jumping on the Bryn bandwagon and my child was a trendsetter a decade ago. :-)" Jul. 15, 2014:

"Bryn is a Welsh boys' name, it means '[from the] hill'; I called my daughter Brynnie to make it more feminine, but we also call her Bryn, Brynna sometimes. It does seem to be difficult for other people to remember/pronounce - they either mishear and think it's Britney [arghh] or misread and think it's Briony, Briody etc. But we love it, and it's pretty unusual."

"I was proudly given the name Brynn in 1983. Named after my moms favorite soap star Brynn Thayer. I too have been called Bryan most of my life and asked if my name is short for something, when sending emails at work I am commonly referred to as Sir. After 34 yrs and seeing how common my name is becoming I embrace it more and feel honored to have such an usual name. It no longer bothers me that people misread or mispronounce my name. I love my unusual name because the meaning suits me." Aug. 8, 2017:

"Used "Brynn" as my daughter's middle name. Spelled it with two "nn's" since "Bryn" is a BOYS name. In Wales (the origin of the name), it is commonly used for men - spelled "Bryn"." Sep. 10, 2012:
"It is annoying when people use "Bryn" for girls since it is a BOYS name. If you are a girl, it should be BRYNN." Nov. 12, 2011:
"I named my daughter Bryndal and we also call her Bryn or Bryndie. We always hear nice comments on how pretty her name is. I have never seen her name in any books but I was able to search her name on a database that gives name meanings by Greek origin from each syllable. According to that her name means "child of God" and that makes it even more special for us." Jan. 26, 2011:
