The Salmon of Knowledge

Braden [Bradán] is derived from an Irish Gaelic word meaning “salmon.” Bradán Feasa is the ‘Salmon of Knowledge’ in Irish folklore.

“According to Celtic legend, an ordinary salmon ate nine hazelnuts that fell into the well of wisdom. By this act, the salmon gained the world’s knowledge. The first person to eat of its flesh would, in turn, gain this knowledge.”
