Breanna is the feminine form of the name Brian, which is Irish for "courageous, honorable and brave." The feminine form was first used by Edmund Spencer in The Faerie Queen. It's still a popular Irish name, but has drastically dropped in the polls in the U.S.

There are almost too many variations too choose from. Brianne and Breeanna are variations that aren't as popular, but as just as pretty. The nickname Bree or Bri is also cheerful yet sophisticated. This is definitely a boss baby name that needs to be dusted off!

3 Meghan

Meghan is another Irish name with several spelling variations that have also fallen out of favor lately. After being in the top 200 from 1978 through 2004, it fell completely off the charts. Right now, Megan without an "h" is slightly more popular, but it looks as though parents are beginning to prefer the "h". Megan is still in the top 500 as of last year.
