When translated from Irish, An Bradán Feasa means the 'Salmon of Knowledge' - a fabled creature from Irish mythology. According to the legends of the band of warriors known as the Fianna, this particular fish possessed all of the world's knowledge. Whoever was clever enough to catch it, would in turn gain this knowledge.
