Hello!
I just found out I am pregnant with a set of twins, one boy and one girl. I would LOVE to have my children have beautiful Irish names, but I need some suggestions. My grandfather immigrated from County Kerry, so I would love to keep our heritage alive. Can anyone tell me the origin of the name "Bryce"? I've been told it's Irish, is it really? And if so, what does it mean? Any suggestions for other boy & girl names would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time!
Brigid

MacLysaght lists Bryce in his books of Irish surnames. It is of English origin. Some Irish people with the surname Ó Breasláin chose to use Bryce as their name in English (although most went with Breslin). It is most common in N.W. Ireland, especially Donegal.
