Name Root:
The name Bruce arrived in Scotland with the Normans, from the place-name Brix. Brix is a commune in the Manche department in Normandy in northwestern France. Brix is known primarily as the assumed origin of the Bruce family, who emigrated to Britain in the Middle Ages, settling in northern England and southern Scotland. The family became a royal house with the accession of Robert the Bruce in 1306. Initially promulgated via the descendants of King Robert I of Scotland (Robert the Bruce) (1274–1329), it has been a Scottish surname since medieval times and is now a common given name. The meaning of this name is still quite uncertain today. One of the theories includes: “the willowlands.”
