Meaning

This trendy last-name-turned-first-name is an alternative to the Irish classic Brian. Its origins are scattered, drawing on Celtic, French and Gaelic influences where two Irish clan names combined to form Bryson. The Welsh derivative is infinitely simpler: Bryson means “son of Bryce”. It’s not that common – yet, so it might be wise to snap up this name while it’s still fresh!
