Meaning of Brinley

Brinley is an Americanized respelling of Brynlee, also an American invention inspired by the masculine Welsh name Bryn. Bryn, in turn, comes from a Welsh word meaning "hill, mound". The name was adopted by American parents for their daughters as Brynn and this eventually morphed into Brynlee and Brinley. Parents in the US have a penchant for adding the "lie", "-lee" or "-lyn(n)" suffix to their female names. Marlee, Hailee, Caylee, Bailee, Kynlee are other examples of these inventions or modifications to existing names with the cutesy “-lee” suffix. Brinley is the simpler and less cheesy of the two, but Brynlee with the 'y' barely gives the name adding Celtic/Welsh flavour.


Brinley followed Brynlee on the charts a year later in 2009. So these are names that haven't been in circulation long enough to get a spot on the charts until very recently. Both names have also been increasing in use, although Brynlee is the preferred spelling. It's probably only a matter of time before Brynlie or Brinleigh show up to the party. She has a lot of competition with names like Brylee and Braylee, too. Brinley is a very nice name; there's no denying that. She feels a bit too playful, cutesy and modern. But that's exactly what some American parents are after. Simple and sweet.
