- I love Irish names, as that is my heritage. I think this name is ultra feminine, and a less common form of Brianna.
- This is a favorite because of the nice, soft sound it makes, as well as the image of a very nice person, thanks to a friend of mine.
- Brenna Jane Brenna is a very feminine sounding name, and it would just suit a little 3 year old very well, and as a teenager, it would sound beautiful, Jane because it is simple and it sounds so wonderful with Brenna, that and because it is the woman I want to have as my mother in law's first name.
- Brenna Maread Ailis: Maread (MAH REED) Ailis (AY Leesh). Ok, I'm a big fan of Nora Roberts and if you know her work, then you know she adores the Irish. This is our heritage and I thought it had a nice ring to it.
- Brenna Scarlett This name is just too cute!! Brenna is a rare name, but not unusual. The word "Brenna" shimmers. Scarlett, of course, is after Scarlett O'Hara. There is something mystical and magical about Gone With The Wind and the characters in it. I want a piece of that uniqueness to be carried out in the name of my little girl. I want her to know that she too, like Scarlett O'Hara, is a unique, magical, and beautiful individual.
Brenna is a modern name, based upon names like Brenda and Glenna. It is often said to stem from the Celtic word bran, meaning "raven," thus a lot of baby name books say it means "raven-haired beauty" or something like that. However, it was more likely coined as a form of Brenda (meaning "sword"), or as a feminine form of Brendan, meaning "prince."
