You are very close to the correct meaning. The word 'Brahma' also means
'Veda'. So, this person who has acquired a lot of veda vidyA, vedAnta,
purANa, smRti etc. and a real repository of such vidyA is really endowed
with the vidyA-srI. His 'srI', wealth, is this veda(vidyaa). So he is
referred to as BrahmasrI...
Sometimes another word is also added before brahmasrI - vedamUrti
brahmasrI. In its shortened form it is 've.mu.br.sri'....
