Although some believe that this triangle and the adjacent avenue are named for Bronx Revolutionary War hero Captain Bryant, they are more likely named in honor of William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878), distinguished poet, journalist, and abolitionist, as well as a key figure in the organization of the Republican Party. Several streets surrounding Bryant Triangle are also named for American poets including Whittier, Longfellow and Drake.
