Meaning & History

Allegedly an older form of Irish beag "small".

In Irish mythology, Bec is one of the Tuatha Dé Danann.
"She was known for having a magic well, guarded by her three daughters. When Fionn mac Cumhaill approached the well to ask for a drink, her daughters tried to prevent him from getting the water; 'one of them threw water over him to scare him away and some of it went into his mouth. From the water he gained wisdom.'"
