Steeped in ancient lore, Braden is an Irish masculine name with surprising reverence. As a variation of the Gaelic word bradan, meaning "salmon," Bradan may be prone to underestimation. But dive into its depths, and one can uncover an enchanting world of shapeshifting and magic. In Celtic literature, to bestow your youth with an animal's name was to instill them with its most revered properties. And no species was more sought over than An Bradán Feasa—the Salmon of Knowledge—whose flesh contained untold wisdom and knowledge. Fionn MacCumhaill may have emerged the victor from this beloved Irish myth, but who knows the secret wonders your young Braden may reveal in time.
