(Onomasticon Anglo-Saxonicum, Searle, 1897)

    Now bryna, in the sense of sharpening or giving an edge to an implement, might most naturally be derived from the Icel. bryni. Dan. bryne, an edge, in the same way that eggia (which like bryna is used, first in the sense of sharpening, and secondarily of exhorting) is from egg, an edge. (Proceedings of the Philological Society, v.2, 1846)
