Brian
(sometimes spelled Bryan in English) is a male given name of Irish and Breton origin,[1] as well as a surname of Occitan origin.[2] It is common in the English-speaking world. It is possible that the name is derived from an Old Celtic word meaning "high" or "noble".[1] For example, the element bre means "hill"; which could be transferred to mean "eminence" or "exalted one".[2] The name is quite popular in Ireland, on account of Brian

Male
A male (♂) organism is the physiological sex that produces sperm. Each spermatozoon can fuse with a larger female gamete, or ovum, in the process of fertilization. A male cannot reproduce sexually without access to at least one ovum from a female, but some organisms can reproduce both sexually and asexually. Most male mammals, including male humans, have a Y chromosome, which codes for the production of larger amounts of testosterone to develop male reproductive organs. Not all species share a common sex-determination system. In most animals, including humans, sex is determined genetically, but in some species it can be determined due to social, environmental, or other factors

Nickname
A nickname is a substitute for the proper name of a familiar person, place, or thing, for affection or ridicule.[1] The term hypocoristic is used to refer to a nickname of affection between those in love or with a close emotional bond, compared with a term of endearment. The term diminutive name refers to nicknames that convey smallness, hence something regarded with affection or familiarity (e.g., referring to children), or contempt.[2] The distinction between the two is often blurred. It is a form of endearment and amusement. As a concept, it is distinct from both pseudonym and stage name, and also from a title (for example, City of Fountains), although there may be overlap in these concepts. A moniker also means a nickname or personal name.[3] The word often distinguishes personal names from nicknames that became proper names out of former nicknames

Mononym
A mononymous person is an individual who is known and addressed by a single name, or mononym.[1][2] In some cases, that name has been selected by the individual, who may have originally been given a polynym ("multiple name"). In other cases, it has been determined by the custom of the country[3] or by some interested segment. In the case of historical figures, it may be the only one of the individual's names that has survived and is still known today.Contents1 Antiquity 2 Medieval uses2.1 Europe 2.2 The Americas3 Post-medieval uses3.1 France 3.2 Other Europe 3.3 North America4 Royalty 5 Modern times5.1 Mononym-normal 5.2 Asia 5.3 The West6 Gallery 7 See also 8 Notes 9 References 10 External linksAntiquity[edit]NarmerThe structure of persons' names has varied across time and geography.
