Brianna is a girl's name of Irish origin, meaning "high," "noble," and "exalted". It is a derivation of Briana, the feminine version of Brian. The name has a rich history, dating back to the 10th and 11th centuries, when Brian Boru was Ireland's most highly-regarded high king, who liberated the nation from centuries of Viking rule. The name Brianna has also been associated with the meaning "resolute" and "strong". It is believed to have first entered the scene in the 16th century with Edmund Spenser's poem. The name Brianna originates from the Old Celtic translation, which means 'high' or 'noble'. The word 'bre' might be interpreted as 'hill,' 'eminent,' or 'exalted one'.
