Other Origin(s):Irish, Swedish
Meaning:The exalted one
Gittan is a girl’s name of Swiss origin, taken from the Old Irish name Bridget, most famously carried by one of the patron saints of Ireland and Sweden. While Catholic-saint-inspired names grew out of use in Switzerland after the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century, Gittan, meaning "the exalted one," remains a praiseworthy reminder of the country's historic Catholic traditions. It might even inspire your little one to pluck up the courage of their own convictions, whatever they turn out to be.
