Characteristics of Brycen
Etymology & Historical Origin - Brycen
Brycen is a fanciful version of Bryce. The name Bryce is derived from a Scottish surname which, in turn, originated as a given name (Brice) from the Middle Ages. The name is thought to come from a Gaulish (Celtic) origin meaning “speckled” (for all those freckled-faced Celtic types). Surnames were often derived from nicknames that signified personal characteristics, so this is likely the origin. Bryce/Brice is also a Welsh name from “ap + rhys” meaning ‘son of the ardent one.’ If this is not enough for you, then the name could also be derived from an old Celtic adjective meaning ‘alert.’ The name was borne by a 4th century French saint called Brice of Tours. An orphan, Brice was raised by Saint Martin but became vain and ambitious, treating his guardian with much contempt. Martin responded with great patience and kindness, and eventually Brice would remorsefully ask for his forgiveness. He went onto succeed Martin as Bishop of Tours only to revert back to his old ways: neglecting his duties and behaving immorally, so that he was eventually discharged from his post. Exiled to Rome, Brice would repent and completely change his lifestyle. He returned to his old post after seven years in Rome and went onto rule with great humility and holiness and was venerated as a saint by the time of his death. Brycen is an Americanized version of Bryce or Brice.
Popularity of the Name Brycen
Brycen did not appear on the American male naming charts until 1998, so this one is a pretty new coinage. It’s currently not as popular as Bryce or Bryson, but it is more popular than Brice. Brycen has managed pretty well on the charts for the past almost 15 years. It’s gained low-moderate usage so far but appears to be advancing forward at a pretty decent clip. Brycen is a modern-day fashionable alternative to the more traditional name Brian while still retaining that Celtic quality. We’ll have to wait and see though if it can stand the test of time.
