Bernadette is a feminine name of French origin, meaning "brave bear" or "strong". It is derived from the masculine name Bernard and is also associated with the West Germanic words "bern," meaning bear, and "hard," meaning "hardy" or "brave". The name is pronounced as ber-na-dette. The name Bernadette gained popularity due to Saint Bernadette Soubirous, a French peasant girl who claimed to have seen visions of the Virgin Mary in the 19th century. She was canonized in 1933 and is now known as Saint Bernadette of Lourdes. The name's association with courage and strength makes it a suitable choice for those who believe their baby has an adventurous streak or a lionhearted determination to succeed.
