If your name is Brittany, you are a strong independent thinker. You enjoy working on your own more than in a team (or at least you like to be the leader of the team where you are the primary decision-maker). You are determined and willing to take risks and you have no doubt that you will succeed in all your endeavors.
You might be less diplomatic sometimes than the situation requires, especially when someone tries to tell you what to do. But you can overcome this just by paying attention to being a little more gentle in your interactions with others. You are a loyal friend and those who have won your friendship are appreciative of your candor, willingness to express yourself, and your honesty.
Brittany is the name of a region in northwest France that was originally settled by Celtic-speaking peoples from Cornwall and Devon (in England) as they fled from the Anglo-Saxon Germanic invaders in the fifth century. The name of the region Brittany comes from the French word “Bretagne” which means “from Briton (England).” Brittany remains today as the home to more native Celtic-speaking people than any other nation aside from Ireland or Wales.
By the end of the 20th century, Brittany was used by most of the English-speaking world as a name for girls. 1971 marked its first appearance among the United States’ most popular names, and by 1981, it was one of the Top 100 most popular names for baby girls in America. Continuing its rapid climb, it became a Top 10 name in 1986, and was the third most popular girls’ name in the country between 1989 and 1991. It has now diminished from its ultra-trendy popularity but remains a truly lovely name!
There are numerous famous Brittany actresses: Brittany Curran, Brittany Daniel, Brittany Snow, and Brittany Murphy. Famous Brittany athletes include U.S. Olympic athletes Brittany Riley (Track & Field) and Brittany Hayes (Water Polo), along with Canadian Olympic athlete Brittany Timko (Soccer). Celebrity country singer Collin Raye loved the name Brittany so much that gave the name to his daughter!
