What do you think of this name?

I am due in two months with a little girl and we have finally decided on a name. We want to name her Abrianna (AUBRY-AH-NA) but my family says its too confusing because of the spelling. We personally like the spelling better without adding a U. Do you think this is a pretty name? What about the spelling?

  • I think its pretty...and I am sure she will be able to spell it one day...;)

    My dd's name is Madilyn and she is having trouble learning to write, so now I feel bad and wish we would have named her Ann or something easy for her to

    She will get it one day... ;)

  • Before reading your intended pronunciation I read it as A-bree-ahna. I like the spelling with the U, but then I like the name Aubry.

  • I think it's a very pretty name.

    Though to be honest without the "U" when I first read it, I pronounced it to myself "A-brianna."

  • i think if you need to tell ppl how its pronounced, then it needs to be changed..(add the U)...i do think its a pretty name tho

  • I agree with everyone else, add the U. Without it, no one will ever pronounce it correctly.

  • I love it but I would add the u, too.

  • Here's the thing, I was born with not so common name that hardly anybody even to this day can read and pronounce (it's German). I grew up telling people over and over how to say my name, getting my feelings hurt when people would still mess it up after corrected. As a child I hated it and never could understand why my mom gave me this name while giving my brothers more common names. Now as an adult I could care less at the mispronouncing of my name, in fact most of the time I never notice. I cannot picture having any other name and have learned to respect and define it as a part of who I am. I have four children three of whom have common names spelled slightly differently; so far each love their names but even if they didn't it is who they are and they'll learn to grow with it.

    I guess what I'm saying is name your baby as you see fit; she will learn to grow and love it and make it hers.
