Actually it's pronounced like "BREED".

In Irish mythology this was the name of the goddess of fire, poetry and wisdom, the daughter of the god Dagda.

This is my name, I was named after my great-great-grandmother who came over from Ireland. I pronounce it bridge-id and I'm told she did too. When she got to America she had to change her name to Mary Louise because very few Irish were being employed and Brighid is a highly Irish name. I feel very lucky that I get to display my culture in a way that was taken from her and I'm very proud of the name.

The one I know pronounces it Bridge-id. This pronunciation is more common in English speaking regions unfamiliar with Celtic-Gaelic languages.
