Bridger Name Meaning & Origin

Bridger

Pronunciation: BRI-djer (key)

Bridger is a tradesman surname, which puts it in the the company of names like Tanner and Carter. Its use as a baby name, though, owes more to the Bridger Mountains of Montana and Wyoming. That association has made Bridger a rugged regional favorite. It's popular in Utah, Montana, Idaho and Wyoming, while in many parts of the country it remains virtually unknown.
