Bryce

Bryce is an English male name, a variant spelling of Brice which comes from Latin Bricius which seems to be an anglicized form of a Gaulish name meaning “speckled, mottled” derived from Proto-Celtic *brikkos (speckled). Bryce is also a surname originating from the given name, though as a Welsh surname it could be an anglicized form of ap Rhys meaning “son of Rhys”, the latter meaning “ardor”, “enthusiasm”, “splendor, glory” in Welsh.

Origin: Proto-Celtic
