My name is Bryan, I am 12 and have brown hair, blue eyes, and glasses. I'm pretty smart. Almost everyone I'meet spells it "Brian" which is very annoying. Sometimes my non-I'mediate family even spells it wrong! Also, sometimes when I was little I would be called "Cryin Bryan" because I cried a lot. Also, I have never met an'ther Bryan, but I see a Bryan in a yearbook here and there.

My brother's name is Bryan. Most people seem to confuse it with Ryan or almost always spell it "Brian". He likes his name for the most part though. We don't personally know anyone else that'spells it with a "y", so it is kind of neat to be different.
