Inspired by beauty
If your name is Breanna, you value beauty in all things. You are particularly inspired by the beauty and mysteries of nature, whether it be a walk in the woods, an afternoon hiking in the mountains, a sunrise over the beach, or just watching a ladybug eating a leaf. You also find relaxation, renewal, and emotional release in beautiful music—classical to jazz to rock and roll.
As is particularly evidenced by your love of nature, you are a deep and spiritual person, and you often prefer to spend time alone with your thoughts as opposed to too much talking. In fact, when it comes to self-expression, you actually are able to get your point across better in writing than with verbal expression. When speaking, you can sometimes a bit too honest and candid—sometimes causing offense and hurt feelings. That’s why writing can often serve you better.
Because of your preference for being alone, sometimes people get the wrong idea and think that you are being stand-offish or snobby. But the truth is that you really value the love, affection, and understanding of others. You just don’t always know how to show it. It’s also safer not to show it sometimes since you can be easily offended. But those in your inner-circle know you to be a truly lovely and sensitive soul with great gifts to offer all who take the time to know you.
The girls’ name Breanna is an American spelling of the name Brianna, which comes to us from Ireland as the feminine form of the name Brian. The boys’ name Brian, in turn, comes from the Celtic word “bre” which means “hill” or “high, noble.” The feminine form Brianna (which led to Breanna) has been around since Edmund Spenser used it for the name of a character in his 1590 epic poem “The Faerie Queene.”
Six years after Briana made its debut on the U.S. popularity charts and three years after Brianna, the second spelling variation of Breanna debuted in 1976. Breanna quickly climbed the charts and enjoyed a position in the Top 100 for ten straight years (from 1992 through 2001). Today it is the third most popular spelling in the United States of the various sound-alike variations.
