In the Palatinate the name was changed to German form Brennemann and then, with the arrival of the Mennonite immigrant Melchior Brenneman(n) in Lancaster County, PA, in the beginning of the 18th century, to Brenneman. Among the Mennonites and Amish in the US the name is also established in the form Breneman.
