See Birgitta, Dragon Matron.

Name originEdit

Birgitta is a Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish and Icelandic feminine name of two possible origins: Old Norse and Celtic. The name is usually taken as a Scandinavian form of Irish Gaelic Bridget "high, exalted" (from Old Irish Brigit); although it is most likely the feminine for Swedish, Norwegian, Danish Birger, from the Old Norse name Birgir, probably derived from bjarga meaning "help, save, rescue". This is the name of the patron saint of Europe, Birgitta of Sweden, the 14th-century founder of the Bridgettine nuns.
