Name Meaning

English: probably from Middle English, Old French brace ‘arm’, also denoting a piece of armor covering the arm. In most cases it is probably a metonymic occupational name for a maker or seller of armor, specifically armor designed to protect the upper arms, but it could also have been a nickname for someone with strong arms ( compare Armstrong ) or a deformed or otherwise noticeable arm.
