Meaning & Origins

Transferred use of the surname, in origin probably an occupational name for a grower or seller of pomegranates (from a metathesized form of Old French (pome) grenate, Latin pomum granatum ‘fruit full of seeds’). The name of the red-coloured precious stone derives from the same source, in reference to the fruit's bright red colour, and use as a modern first name may have been inspired by the adoption of other terms denoting gemstones as female names. It may also in part reflect the fame of the British field marshal Sir Garnet Wolseley (1833–1913).

English: nickname for a cheerful or lively person, from Middle English bragge ‘lively’, ‘cheerful’, ‘active’, also ‘brave’, ‘proud’, ‘arrogant’ (of unknown origin).
