Bryony - Meaning of Bryony
[ 3 syll. bryo-ny, br-y-ony ] The baby girl name Bryony is pronounced BRIYah-Niy- †. Bryony is of English origin and it is also used mainly in English. The first name is taken from the flower name bryony, in reference to the perennial tendril-climbing herb, which is ultimately of the Latin bryonia and the Old Greek bryo (meaning 'to grow, sprout').
