Comments and insights on the name Brydon: | Edit

Combination of Brian and Donn.
This is a traditional Scottish surname, sometimes also found as Bryden or Briden. In the latest trend of finding names that end with the "den" or "dan" suffix, this surname has been brought to light and become trendy as a first name. The meaning of the surname is very unclear although there is speculation that it refers generically to "Britian".

Different theory: A period of bilingualism emerged as the Angles and Saxons displaced the Celtic Britons in the early Middle Ages. So you see many place names that combine Anglo-Saxon with British, such as what is today known as Breedon on the Hill in Leicestershire. Breedon is a combination of Bre (Celtic for hill) and Dun (Anglo-Saxon or Old English for hill). So Breedon on the Hill should be translated as hill-hill on the hill. It is a bit like Mille Lacs Lake in Minnesota.
