Brin for a boy?

I’m really loving [name_u]Brin[/name_u] for a boy’s name. The spelling [name_u]Brin[/name_u] just looks so masculine to me. It probably wouldn’t be a contender over our other options for our baby boy due in [name_u]December[/name_u] but just for the sake of discussing names and keeping options open for a possible little brother to either [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] or [name_m]Marshall[/name_m] (still our top 2 choices), what do you think of [name_u]Brin[/name_u] for a boy?

I know [name_f]Brynn[/name_f] is quite popular for girls nowadays but [name_u]Brin[/name_u] was originally a boy name and I dont mind unisex names as much when there is a designated spelling for boys and a separate spelling for girls.

Also, what middle names do you like with [name_u]Brin[/name_u]?

I like it on a boy, although I would definitely spell it [name_u]Bryn[/name_u]. To me, [name_u]Brin[/name_u] actually looks more feminine and like a nickname for [name_u]Brinley[/name_u].

I know a [name_u]Brinley[/name_u] (m) who goes by [name_u]Brin[/name_u] sometimes. I think a lot of people might Spell brin as [name_u]Bryn[/name_u](n).

I see [name_u]Brin[/name_u] as a better spelling for a boy and [name_u]Bryn[/name_u] or [name_f]Brynn[/name_f] for a girl but I guess it’s a mixed bag! I am not a fan of [name_u]Brinley[/name_u] for some reason!!

I think [name_u]Brin[/name_u] is really nice!

I like the way it sounds but I have a few cousins named [name_m]Brian[/name_m] and it just looks like a typo to me. I would use it but maybe [name_u]Brinn[/name_u] or [name_u]Bryn[/name_u] as others have said

Brin just looks incomplete and a bit like brine to me. Much prefer [name_u]Bryn[/name_u], it’s definitely not a girls’ name in [name_m]Wales[/name_m] (where it’s from) so you should be fine. I much prefer [name_u]Elliott[/name_u] anyway though.

Interesting. I think [name_u]Brin[/name_u] looks clean, simple and more masculine than [name_u]Bryn[/name_u]. When I see [name_u]Bryn[/name_u] or [name_f]Brynn[/name_f] I assume girl’s name but I can think about spelling more.

I was wondering in general if [name_u]Brin[/name_u] (in any spelling) works for a boy these days? And what middle name you would suggest! Thanks!!

I like [name_u]Brin[/name_u]!! I think I like it paired with a longer middle name
Sorry for any middle name repeats

It’s not my style, but I think it could work as a boy name. It sounds like a version of [name_m]Brian[/name_m] or [name_m]Brandon[/name_m].

I’m liking [name_u]Brin[/name_u] [name_m]Conall[/name_m]. Not my usual taste but its endearing! (Spelling TDB so please dont get caught up in that!) Again this probably wouldn’t rank above names we have already discussed for baby boy due in [name_u]December[/name_u] but I think I’m just collecting names at this point!

I cant use [name_m]Brian[/name_m] or [name_m]Brandon[/name_m]. I really like [name_m]Brandon[/name_m] but its super off limits due to past associations unfortunately! [name_m]Brian[/name_m] rhymes with too many other names in the family and even though I like [name_u]Brin[/name_u] and [name_m]Brandon[/name_m], oddly enough I dont really like [name_m]Brian[/name_m]. I do really like [name_u]Briar[/name_u] but that one really screams girl name to me.

Hello! [name_f]My[/name_f] name is [name_f]Brynn[/name_f]! I’m a girl. I love the name [name_u]Bryn[/name_u] on a boy (the traditional welsh spelling), and if my name were not [name_f]Brynn[/name_f] I would consider it! I don’t like the spelling [name_u]Brin[/name_u] it looks wrong to me, and it is how people try and spell my name when they know nothing about it
