Bridget is a female given name. It comes from the Irish word brígh, which means "power, vigor, strength, virtue". Another meaning for this name is "exalted one".

The name is very popular in Ireland as a result of the popularity of Saint Brigid of Kildare. In the United States, Bridget was most often used in the 1970s, when it ranked near 153. The name has since dropped in its being popular in the United States. People named Bridget include Bridget Fonda.
