title etymology is Celtic, although typical forms of the name are "Bridget" spelled in different methods as well as in Germany "Brigita." Usually the brands tend to be mispronounced "Bri-jee-ta" whenever in fact Brygida is pronounced "Bri-gee-da" or sometimes said as "Ber-gee-da." This is actually the Polish cognate of the name used a hundred years or two ago as "Brighid" (Breed) which can be a Christian name.The title has a history of modification of spelling and pronunciation based on the language/country and history. It is likely never used as a boys title and it is often, yet still a rare naming becoming rarer, employed for east European or us women. Although that may vary.
