Briac Origin and Meaning

The name Briac is a boy's name .

St Briac was an Irish saint who arrived in Northern France in the 6th century and gave his name to the small commune of Saint-Briac-sur-Mer in Brittany. The name is thought to be related to Brian, though it may be a completely separate name stemming from the Celtic word "bruaich" meaning "steep hill". Briac definitely brings a fresh continental feel and would be a good choice for those who would like a name with both French and Irish connections
