(Bry-suh) this is Greek and means "victory." Its just pretty.

Pronounced /BREE sa/, this name is popular within the Spanish-speakers in North and South America. It means "breeze" in Spanish, though it probably originated as a short form of the name Briseida, a form of the Greek name Briseis. I'm not sure where the above poster got the Greek/victory origin from.
