Meaning:Exalted one; Strength
Despite being a far cry from Bridget, this beautiful girl's name shares its Irish meaning, "exalted one" or "strength." Traditionally, it stems from the nickname Biddy, which inspired the quirky personality of Amelia Bedelia of a popular Irish children's book series. Bedelia may also take inspiration from Brigid, a pre-Christian Irish goddess of fire and poetry. One notable person to share this name is actress Bonnie Bedilia, sister of Macaulay Culkin.
