- Comments and insights on the name Brigham: | Edit
I looked up the two syllables of the name Brigham in an old dictionary in facsimile (American Dictionary of the English Language Noah Webster 1828), and it is comprised of Welsh "brig" "a top or summit" and Saxon "ham" "a house", so I take it to mean the quote from Isaiah in the Old Testament about the holy temple of the Israelites, "house at the top of the mountain".
- Personal experiences with the name Brigham: | Edit
Our son's name is Brigham and most everyone loves it. We call him Briggs or Briggy. He calls himself Biggy.
My husband's name is Brigham, named after his great-great-great-grandfather Brigham Young. The funny part is that his family isn't LDS (Mormon), his father just liked the family history.
