Meaning of the baby name BRISE-BRAS.

  

BRISE-BRAS.  A French corruption of Welsh Freichfras ("strong-arm"), meaning "break-arm" or "wasted arm."  Cf. Norman Briefbras.

... Vreichfras means the strong arm, but the French trouveurs rendered it Brise-bras, the wasted arm; and told of an enchanter who fixed a serpent on the knight's arm, from whose torture nothing could relieve him but that she whom he loved best should undergo it in his stead... (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).
