Briella

by Lemonjello Redenbacher on February 19, 2011

In addition to being all around awful, this one also sounds way too much like Cruella (which is probably her mother’s name).

FWIW, I know a friend who loved the name “Gabriella” but did not want her child to get stuck with “Gabby” as a nickname. So she just used “Briella”. It really isn’t as awful as it seems. :)

And I have never thought about Cruella…Just like I don’t think about Cruella when people say Isabella, or any other “ella” name.

Sorry – that does nothing to lessen the awfulness of the name. She could have picked a thousand other names that didn’t sound like shit. Gabby is better than Briella, too.

I sure do! It’s called common sense. ;)

Gabby does, indeed, suck ass. But at least it’s been around and has been somewhat swallowable. We don’t need new shit like Briella to force down our throats.

Although I see your point, I don’t totally agree with the nickname thing, as sometimes nicknames just develop naturally, despite the parents good intentions on using the full name when the child was born. But the one thing I hate — I REALLY FUCKING HATE – is when someone tells me, “We’re naming her Susan Grace (or whatever the first and middle names are)…but we’re going to call her Grace.” I want to rip that person’s face off and stomp on it with golf shoes.

I dunno, I think “Gabby” is pretty shit-tastic. But I’m anti-nickname anyway. If you want your child to go by a shortened version of a longer name..just use the shorter name! That’s what she did.

Do you have some kind of scale or formula you use to decide what is “all around” awful or is it just your personal sense of awfulness?

My husband’s family is like that…And for that reason alone, I picked names that do not easily morph into nicknames for my kids…The one has a middle name that just doesn’t do well alone…and the second has shorter first name…so there’s no reason to use the nickname, b/c it’s not “shorter” or “cuter” or anything like that.

Altogether now.. ‘Under my umbriella ella ella…’ Kids are cruel and don’t give a shit whether adults don’t like or agree with nicknames.

Briella? If you want people to take this site seriously maybe you should keep to just posting names that are genuinely horrible rather than names you don’t personally like. I know like a dozen Briella’s (it’s a very common name) and I really don’t see what’s wrong with it past personal preference. I mean it’s your site, I don’t care if others don’t take you seriously.

Pull your head out of your ass and take a look around the site, Jenny. Most people around here take me more seriously than your kind.

Seriously this is coming from someone that calls themselves Lemonjello?

Lol, you mean the people who come on here to have people agree with them that names are horrible? I’m saying you wouldn’t last in an arguement with real competition. My head isn’t in my ass, it’s in the real world.

Learn how to spell argument before telling me that I’d lose one.

You’d lose an argument even if it was spelled horsesass.

No one thinks of Cruella when they hear Briella, it’s just a regular name.

What the fuck are you talking about? How can you purport to speak for everyone? I can say with 100% certainty that you are wrong, because I think of Cruella when I hear Briella.

Christ – some people may not agree with me, but at least I admit that mine is just one OPINION, and don’t claim to speak for everyone in the fucking world.

Briella sounds like a shitty name, no matter what ANYONE says. It reminds me of an umbrella.

How does Briella remind your of “umbrella”, are you retarded? At least Cruella makes a little sense. I agree with Jenny, this really doesn’t fall into the category of “stuidkidnames”, it sounds perfectly fine.

The name Briella is of Hebrew origin.

The meaning of Briella is “G-d is my strength”. It is the feminine version of Gabriel. So it’s been around for awhile and is a beautiful name in my opinion. So if you think it just some new made up name, and you hate it so much….don’t name your kid it.

Why do people like you insist on coming here to give the fucking history of a name? Just because it’s old or is of a certain origin doesn’t mean it’s not fucking stupid. So what if it’s Hebrew? Can’t Hebrews be assholes too?

And I agree, Briella is a monstrosity.

We won’t have to worry about Lemonjello using the name Briella anytime soon. He’s a long way from getting laid much less impregnating someone!
