Brand Family History

Recorded in over fifty different spellings including Brand, Brands, Brandt, Braund, Brando, Brann, Braun, Bront, and many others, it is regarded as German, English and French. It usually derives from the male given name Brando, a short form of popular compound personal names such as Hildebrand. It originates from the pre 6th Anglo-Saxon word "brinnan", meaning a flash, as in a flash of lightning. The name can also be topographical and relate to a person who lived by a "brant". This described an area of agricultural land, one which was cleared by fire, a common practice in ancient times.
