Etymology of the name BRIEFBRAS.
Meaning of the baby name BRIEFBRAS.

  

BRIEFBRAS.  Arthurian.  A surname of sir Caradoc.  A Norman corruption of Welsh Freichfras ("strong arm"), meaning "shrunken-arm."  There is also a French form, Brise-bras ("break-arm").

... Brief-Bras, or "shrunken-arm," a Norman corruption of Freich-Fras, or "strong-arm."  To explain the reason of the former epithet, the later romancers feigned that a wicked enchanter caused a serpent to fasten on Caradoc's arm, and suck his flesh and blood, and that no human power was able to assuage his pain, or remove the reptile... (An Explanatory and Pronouncing Dictionary of the Noted Names of Fiction, Wheeler, 1898)
