123 Breton Baby Names With Meanings

Breton, the strong artisans with a legacy of having been ruled by the Altmer, cherish nobility and power, which is visible in their choice of names as well. Breton names are mainly inspired by real-world French, English, and Gaelic names, but are modified to give them the perfect Old-English or Breton feel. But that’s not a hard-and-fast rule. Breton also use plenty of unusual names that do not seem to fit any particular pattern. The family names or surnames, on the other hand, are mainly normal French, English or Gaelic last names.
