Meaning:Noble; Power
Bree is a girl’s name of Irish origin and comes from the traditional Irish names Bríghe and Brigid. Meaning “noble” and “power,” this regal name has deep roots and entices parents with its simple style and captivating connotations. In Ireland, Bríghe was the Celtic goddess of healing, poetry, childbirth, and blacksmithing—there are still monuments and healing wells that stand in her honor today. However, the name took on a new life when Saint Brigid, a patron saint of Ireland, entered the scene. A powerful and noble lady, she is highly regarded on the green isle with an annual feast day and traditional rush-woven crosses. One folk tale even claims that the pagan goddess was kidnapped by Christians and transformed into St. Brigid, keeping the enduring influence of both women alive. Today, Bree is a modern and fresh take on this longstanding baby name, evoking the rich history of its past while embracing the future.
