Meaning:From Brittany or Great Britain
Brittan is a gender-neutral given name and surname of Latin origin. It derives from Brittany, the English name for the region of Bretagne in northwest France, and may mean “from Brittany” or “from Great Britain.” Most commonly referred to as Bretons, many people from Brittany fled to southwest England to escape the Anglo-Saxon invasion in the sixth century. As a result, the surnames Brittan, Britton, Britten, and Brittain can often be found in that area. As a first name, Britney and Brittany are the most common variants, but Brittan is a great gender-neutral option.
