Other Origin(s):Irish, Welsh
Meaning:Broom or gorse hill
Brandyn is a gender-neutral name with many potential origins, making the name as mysterious as it is cool. Brandyn may have Old English roots, from brōm dūn, with the idyllic meaning “broom” or “gorse hill.” Broom and gorse are varieties of the heather plant, with vibrant yellow blossoms that brighten the landscape. Brandyn is also considered a form of the Irish Brendan from Brénainn, or the Welsh breenhin, meaning “prince.” What’s more, Brandyn is connected to the Latin Brendanus. Brandyn has a quirky spelling compared to its ancestors, using a hearty “a” trendy “y” to fine-tune that sweet pronunciation. Regardless of which origin calls to you, Brandyn lends a studly title to your little sovereign/flower lover—or both!
