Interesting. I never knew brier was a variant spelling of briar-- though my word processor's dictionary informs me that that is indeed the case. I suppose that I've always read the name "Briarsting" like that because that's what I was expecting to see . . .

I'd have to go home and look it up to be sure, even now.



Yep, brier and briar mean the same thing. It's where the br'er in Br'er Rabbit comes from in the Uncle Remus stories (to name one example). A rabbit that's wise enough to live in a thorny brier patch. :D
