The origin of this name is still quite uncertain today. The theories include: 1) from the Old English “Brom Dun,” meaning “the hill of gorse,” or from the Irish “Bréanainn,” which seems to derive from the medieval Latin “Brendanus,” probably Lombard. 2) from the English “Brendan,” an Anglicized form of the Irish “Breandán,” from the Old Irish “Brénainn,” which in turn, derives from the Welsh word “breenhín,” meaning “prince, king.”
