Brandle Family HistoryThis early surname is of pre 5th century Germanic origins. Recorded in over fifty different spellings including Brand, Brandt, Braund, Brando, Brann, Braun, Bront, and many others, it usually derives from the male given name "Brando". This is itself a short form of a popular compound personal name such as Hildebrand, and originates from "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 word described an area of agricultural land, one which was cleared by fire, a common practice in ancient times.
