Brendan

Brendan m
Irish: from the old Irish personal name Bréanainn, derived from a Celtic element meaning ‘prince’. This was the name of two 6th-century Irish saints, Brendan the Voyager and Brendan of Birr. According to legend, the former was the first European to set foot on North American soil. The modern Irish Gaelic form Breandán and the Anglicized Brendan are based on the medieval Latin form Bredanus.
