    is BRYN a bit masculine?

    To many native English speakers, Bryn would be thought of as a male name. There is a famous Welsh tenor called Bryn Terfel who is unmistakably male.

    Even though it does exist as an English word, I still think that if it's your name, use it and be proud of it. While it seems very likely that no native speaker would use it as a name, the fact that you're not a native speaker will help make it obvious that you're using it as your name, NOT as the English verb. In the end, the decision is yours.
