Other Origin(s):Irish, Scandinavian
Meaning:Exalted one
Birgitte is a feminine name loved throughout Scandinavian languages, derived from the Irish Brigid, meaning “exalted one.” This Norwegian appellation exudes elegance and grace and carries the same fire as the Celtic goddess, Brigid. Saint Bridget of Sweden was born Birgitta Birgersdotter, an alternative to Birgitte, and is one of the six patron saints of Europe. Despite its rich and complex history, Birgitte maintains a chic and youthful charm. Parents on the hunt for a sleek Scandinavian name with a dash of Celtic mysticism will find both with Birgitte.
