Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of various places called Brandon, in Durham, Norfolk, Suffolk, Warwickshire, and elsewhere. Most are named with Old English brōm ‘broom, gorse’ + dūn ‘hill’. One in Lincolnshire, however, may be named after the Brant River, on which it stands; Ekwall derives the river name from Old English brant ‘steep’, presumably with reference to its steep banks. This surname was known in Ireland early enough to have a Gaelicized form de Breandún.

Irish (Kerry): Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Breandáin ‘son of Breandán’, a rare Kerry surname from the Latinized form of the name of the local saint, Brendan (Brendanus from Bréanainn).

French: from the Old French oblique case of the personal name Brando, of ancient Germanic origin (see Brand 1).
