Birgitta is the Swedish form of the Irish Gaelic female name Brighid. Brighid was the name of an ancient Celtic goddess, and its English form is Bridget. Birgitta and its alternate form Birgit became common names in Scandinavia because of St. Bridget of Sweden.
Saint Birgitta, also known as Birgitta of Vadstena, born Birgitta Birgersdottir was a mystic and saint, and founder of the Bridgettine Order, after over twenty years of married life. Uniquely among saints of the second millennium, she was also the mother of a saint (ME, Jo hihihh) - Saint Catherine of Vadstena of Sweden.
Besides my mother, my 3rd-6th grade teacher was named Birgitta. She keeps a warm place in my heart and life as a person who constantly inspired me to learn and absorbe more!
Thank you beautiful women
