3: Brigid Halfdanardottir -New Name

Submitter desires a feminine name.
No major changes.
Meaning most important.

Brigid is a feminine given name documentable as a Saint's name from Catholic Encyclopedia Online. http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/02784.htm, which references her relics being (re)discovered and venerated in 1185 as well as her inclusion in the Stowe Missal of the 8th or 9th century. Spellings of the name from the Annals Index include forms with -t- and -d-: sancte Brigide/sancte Brigite. It also includes a form with -t: S. Brighit. These suggest an early Brigid. This is in Index of Names in Irish Annals: Feminine Given Names by Mari Elspeth nic Bryan (Kathleen M. O'Brien) http://medievalscotland.org/kmo/AnnalsIndex/Feminine/Brigit.shtml

Halfdanardottir is a constructed patronymic byname. Halfdan - found in Geirr Bassi - GB p. 11 s.n. Hálfdan; FJ pp. 126-129 s.n. Halfdan; NR s.n. Halfdan
