Etymology[edit]

Uncertain. Possibly from Iberian/Celtiberian *bruxtia (compare Occitan bruèissa, Portuguese bruxa, Spanish bruja), from Proto-Celtic *brixtā (spell, magic) (compare Old Irish bricht (charm), Old Breton brith (magic)). It could instead be akin to a different Celtic word such as Old Irish Brigit (literally high, exalted).
