FORM OF:
surname
LANGUAGE FAMILY:
indo-european > celtic
ORIGIN:
celtic gallic  /  gaelic  /  gaulish 
NAME ROOT:
BRYCH > BRICIUS
MEANING:
This name comes from the Ancient Celtic, via Gaulish “brych”, latinized "bricius", meaning "colorful, speckled, also generous and solid". St. Brice, also known as Britius and Bricius, was raised by St. Martin of Tours at Marmoutier. He became a vain, overly ambitious cleric, holding Martin in great contempt. Despite Brice's attitude, Martin was most patient with him, and in time, in great remorse, he asked Martin's forgiveness for his attitude toward him. Bricius (sometimes anglicized as Brice, died 1222) was prior of Lesmahagow and afterward bishop of Moray (Gaelic epscop Muireb).
