The name Bryn Mason? DH found this name Bryn and he really likes it, I'm kind of partial to it I guess because I've never heard anyone with that name.



Bryn pronounced either *Br-in or * Bren, like wren but with a B
Dh likes it pronounced Brin.

Brynn is one of my favorite girl names. Are you intending it for a boy or a girl? I've heard Mason on both genders before. I pronounce it Brin, rhymes with win not when :)

Bryn is lovely for a girl.
Bryn is the traditional spelling.

He said it is a male Welsh name and he has Welsh in him so I guess that is one of the reasons he likes it. Thanks for your opinion!:)

It's actually pronounced Bren.



It's a unisex name, but for some reason sounds much more feminine to me. I do love the name, but not so much for a boy.

Not trying to argue but I spent 13 years in school with a girl named Brynn that rhymed with win.

This! I wouldn't use Bryn for a boy and I wouldn't use Mason for a girl.

Well that's reasonable. But her Parents were one of the people that took a name and decided it was going to be pronounced how they wanted and not how it was supposed to be.

Yeah. Like Lynn.



That might not be the traditional Welsh pronunciation and it might be a traditionally male name but in our country now, it is used almost exclusively as a female name. So your child would have to deal with having what is seen in our culture as a girls' name. Just sayin'.



I do love the name. Just not for a boy.

Well no different than boys named Ashley, Kelly, Dana, Shannon or Kim. But in Wales it is very much male and pronounced Brin, which is the other spelling.

Yeah I gotcha and you are making my point. We are not in Wales. A boy named Ashley or Kelly will get teased by schoolmates. Whether it was traditionaly male or not, in the US they are used as feminine names, mainly.

I doubt that. Since Ashley, Dana and Shannon are seen as unisex as well as the name Devin and Jaime.
