Origin of the name BERGLJOT.
Etymology of the name BERGLJOT.
Meaning of the baby name BERGLJOT.

  

BERGLJÓT.  Scandinavian name composed of the Old Norse elements berg "elevated rocky ground; a mountain" and ljót "frightful, ugly," hence "mountain ugly." (An Icelandic-English Dictionary, Cleasby-Vigfusson, 1874).

    Sweden has also a St. Bridget, or rather Brigitta; but her name is in her own tongue Bergljot, shortened to Berglit, and then confounded with the Irish Bridget.  It unfortunately means mountain-fright, or guardian defect, though German antiquaries have twisted both Bridgets into Beraht Gifu, bright gift. (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
