A Scottish form of Brighid, taken from the original Scottish Gaelic "Brìghde" (BREE-ja).

The heroine of the Sherrilyn Kenyon book "Night Play" is also named Bride and she is a young Irish-American woman.

A bride is just a woman getting married.

It's pronounced "BREE-jah," a pronunciation which helps relate it to the modern form, Bridget.

Here comes the bride, all dressed in WHITE!

I love this name, when said the Irish way (BREE-jə). (I really wouldn't like it if someone mispronounced it as "Bride" though.) Bríde sounds lovely, homely and traditional. I also think Bríd is pretty, but it's rather drab. Bríde is more interesting. It would make a nice change from the rather mundane Bridget. Don't get me wrong - I like Bridget as well but it's way too common. Bríde would be a lovely alternative.

This looks ridiculous as a name. It will result in a lot of jokes about getting married.

I think this is a decent name, but I wouldn't work as a name in English speaking countries.

This is one of the many names that would be absolutely fine if not for the English language.
