Breda is an anglicized form of the Irish name Bríd, a variant of Brigid, meaning “power, strength, virtue.” Brigid was an early Celtic goddess associated with fire, healing and spring, and was later the name of one of Ireland’s most famous saints. St. Brigid’s feast day is celebrated on the 1st of February, considered the first day of spring. The name was popularized in Scandinavia and Germany by St. Bridget of Sweden, and many variants have developed. These include Brighid, Brigitte, Brigit, Birgitte, and many more. Breda is also an Italian surname meaning “grassy meadow,” deriving from the Latin word braida. If you have both Italian and Irish roots, you may like to honor them both by choosing this lovely name for baby.
