    Name Meaning

    Latinized version of a Continental Germanic name, a short form of various compound women's personal names derived from berht ‘famous’ (akin to Modern English bright). It probably existed in England before the Conquest, and was certainly reinforced by Norman use, but fell out of use in the 15th century. It was reintroduced into the English-speaking world from Germany in the 19th century, but has once again gone out of fashion.
