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


BERNAT.  The same as Beñat (q.v.), a Basque form of Spanish Bernardo (q.v.), meaning "bear strong."

... We have chiefly translators and historians in the 15th century.  Antoni Canals (14th-15th century), a Dominican, who belongs also to the previous century, translates into Catalan Valerius Maximus and a treatise of St. Bernard; Bernat Metge, himself well versed in Italian literature, presents some of its great masters to his countrymen by translating the Griselidis of Petrarch, and also by composing Lo Sompni ("The Dream"), in which the influence of Dante, of Boccaccio, and, generally speaking, of the Italy of the 13th and 14th centuries is very perceptible.  The Feyts d'armes de Catalunya of Bernat Boades (d. 1444), a knightly chronicle brought to a close in 1420, reveals a spirit of research and a conscientiousness in the selection of materials which are truly remarkable for he age in which it was written. (Encyclopedia Britannica, Chisholm, v.25, 1911)
