Moryan will probably be heard as Morgan often.

how are you pronouncing bhrigu? I see that being a slight problem. I find it interesting though.

Maury is an old male name, so maybe mauryan isn't too much of a stretch, however, it may be that it's heard as Mariann, which is all girl, so I'm not sure.

Brigu would be the easier spelling for phonetics, I think.

When I read them both at first I was not sure how to pronounce either. I agree that Mauryan is similair to Maury but could be pronounced Mary-Ann accidentally.
