I have never met a McKenna and/or Brinley, and that's saying a lot because I have been working at two different Elementary schools for several years!

I have never met a McKenna or Brinley. And, neither name is in the top 100 for my state - Kansas on the SSA list. You might check the SSA website for your state to see if they're in the top 100 there.

McKenna or some version of it ie: McKinley or McKenzie are VERY popular. I swear of these three names combined I probably know 20 little girls under the age of 10.

Brinley on the other hand...I only know one irl and she's in her 40's!

I think McKenna is (or will be in the near future) more popular than Brinley. I do not know any Brinley's but I know two McKenna's. One is a newborn and one is about 15.

You can make them in photoshop or, once you've been a member of JM for a certain period of time, you can request one from the Siggie board.

ive actually only know PERSONALLY, One Mckenna, which was a baby born to a friend of mine when we were only sophomores.. and only one Brinley, who was a child of a teachers i watched in HS.. so ive only known one of each personally..

but ive known one other Makenna which is in my PR

im not a fan of Brinley, but McKenna is cute, although i would spell it McKinna

I knew one little girl(almost 3 now) named Makenna.
I don't know anyone named Brinley.
