The first name 

Briany is a female first name.

Briany – one in 100,000!

There’s a good chance that a girl named Briany in a medium-sized town will be unique. That’s because only a few babies a year are named Briany in all of the US. Only about one in 100,000 girls is named Briany by her parents. In the ranking of most common girls names in recent years, Briany ranks at #6,972. That means there are 6,971 more common girls names, but there are also a few thousand that are even rarer. If you polled the whole US population – children, adults and seniors – you’d find less than one in 10,000 to be named Briany.

to discover about the name

Briany -
at home in Florida and New York

If you ever wanted to meet a girl or a woman named Briany, you have limited options – because girls with this beautiful name are currently living in Florida and New York. However, we must admit that a given name is only included in a state’s official statistics if tehre are at least five people with that name living there – so it’s quite possible that there are still a few women and girls called Briany living in one state or another (if your name is Briany and you live outside of Florida and New York, we’d really appreciate it if you’d let us know, so we can refine our statistics even further). Which means – if you put this number in relation to the population of the USA – only one in 965,891 girls and women would turn around if you called out the name Briany. So, if your name is Briany it is very likely that you won’t need a nickname in your peer group, because having the name Briany already makes you special.

Briany has 6 letters 
and begins with a B

Well, you might say, you probably figured that out yourself! But what you might not know is: 3.2% of all common girls' names in the US begin with a B. This means that B as the first letter for girls' names is neither particularly common nor rare. The most common first letters of girls' names are A, S and M, while U, X and Q are the least common initials of girls' names.

With six letters, the name Briany is of average length. In fact, 28% of all common first names in the US consist of exactly six letters. 24% of all first names are shorter, while 48% have seven letters or more. On average, first names in the US (not counting hyphenated names) are 6.5 letters long. There are no significant differences between boys' and girls' names.

Thus, if 3.2% of all girls’ names start with a B, this initial letter is slightly less common than all other letters on average. Nevertheless, there are girls' names with B that are quite common in the U.S., the most common at present is Barbara.

Other names with 
B, r, i, a, n and y

If you take all the letters in the name Briany – B, r, i, a, n and y – and put them together again, you can form other names, such as Brinya or others.
