Meaning:Heather, a thorny patch
Plant-inspired baby names are all the rage right now, and the gender-neutral moniker Brier is a wonderful example! With French and English roots, Brier means “heather” and “a thorny patch”. Heather is a vibrant evergreen plant that changes colour throughout the year. It is particularly prominent in the Scottish countryside, and Britain’s Queen Victoria, an admirer of Scottish culture, believed that the plant symbolized good luck. If you want your little cherub to have natural beauty and good fortune, naming them Brier would be a great place to start.
