Bryson Christy vs. Brycen Christy

After burying my uncle yesterday I decided I wanted to name my son after him and give my son my uncles middle name. We will pronounce it brySEN not brySON, I like the spelling of Bryson better but I don’t want people to say brySON I want them to say brySEN!!! Do you think the spelling will change the way people pronounce it?

The Top Baby Name is...

Bryson Christy


Brycen Christy

How did your uncle spell his name? Personally, I’d probably use an S rather than a C. Brysen should accomplish your goal. But, if you want to honor your uncle, I’d spell it the way he did.

Usually the accent is on BRY instead of the second syllable, and usually that makes it sound a bit more like "-sen" on the second syllable. That could just be my midwestern accent, though. I’ve never heard the name Bryson with the emphasis on the second syllable, so that’s probably where people are going to get the most confused.

As a teacher, people will say it the way it is spelled unless they are close to you and already know the way you want it to be said. Otherwise, he might have a long life of correcting people of how his name is pronounced. Just what I’ve realized over the years dealing with many kiddos.
