I know someone named Brigitte, who pronounces it 'brij-it' just like the spelling 'Bridget'.

As this is the pseudonym of the misanthropic, fascist-leaning French actress Brigitte Bardot, I simply cannot like this name anymore, even though it sounds quite classy and pretty without being too girly. Maybe it could be reclaimed, though.

The name of the younger sister in all three Ginger Snaps movies. They pronounce her name like Bridget.

My name is Brigitte and I'm Dutch, I always pronounce my name as Bri-git with the short i's as the i's in big/brick/sick/etc., so not "long" as Bree-git. Although there are always people who pronounce my name as if it's French, which I really really dislike, actually it's a rare thing if people pronounce it correctly the first time. It isn't that hard, is it?

This name is okay, but it's not really my favorite form of Bridget. I immediately think of Brigitte Bardot and her repugnant political views.

I think it's a rather lovely variation on Bridget, the latter just makes me think of the saint, and even if it's all well and good to be named after a saint, I think it's a bit of a burden to bestow on a little girl. My middle name was about to be Brigitte.
