  • "My Mom named me Bridgett Ann, a good Strong Irish name, given our Irish, Scottish heritage on her side and English, Dutch on my Father's side and American Indian. I like my name and have no issues with it. Growing up I only knew a few other Bridget's from school or social life. Its kinda strange when your out in public to hear someone call the name Bridget out and when I turn to look you see them calling to a small child, to me its special to see another parent naming their little girl the same name as mine as we Bridget's are a Rare Group of Individuals!!! Love your Name Ladies we are Special as we we given our Names for our Strength, Power and Virtue." Mar. 13, 2022: Report as inappropriate

  • "I was named Bridget after my Irish grandmother (same spelling) My other grandmother was Italian and called me Brigida (I can still hear her Italian accent - Her middle name was Josephine so I was named Bridget Josephine.) I am so in love with both of my names. Now that unusual names are so popular, I love them even more and they make me feel unique. I am a strong person, consider myself intelligent, but most of all, I believe I have a good heart. I have bright blue eyes which also seems to suit the name Bridget for some reason. If you are fortunate enough to have the name, wear it with great pride and distinction. By the way, those who know me very well call me "Bridge" for short." Jan. 28, 2021: Report as inappropriate

  • "My name is Bridget Murray, I'm a senior in high school and currently writing an essay on the history of my name which I would definitely recommend to all of you especially the ones with negative thoughts on it. It's well worth the 30 or so minutes! I've always loved my name and how unique it is in America and ties me with my Irish roots, but reading about the origin made me love and connect with it even more.
