Help baby take flight with the name Bran! A name of Scottish and Irish origin, this plucking good boy’s name means “bramble” or “thicket of wild gorse,” as well as “raven.” Game of Thrones and George R.R. Martin fans will find the latter definition particularly apt, as the character Bran Stark assumes the magical and mysterious title of the “Three-Eyed Raven.” Your own little raven is sure to soar to great lengths with this short but sweet moniker!
