    Name Meaning

    English, Scottish, North German, Scandinavian, Dutch, and French (mainly Alsace and Lorraine): from the ancient Germanic personal name Brando, Old Norse Brandr, a short form of various compound names containing the element brand ‘sword’ (a derivative of brinnan ‘to flash’), of which the best known is Hildebrand . There is placename evidence for Brant(a) as an Old English personal name; however, the Middle English personal name Brand was probably introduced to England from Old Norse.

    German: variant of Brandt 1 and, in North America, (also) an altered form of this.

    Swedish and Danish: ornamental name or nickname from brand ‘fire’.
