Meaning:To burn
Brenner is a name with passion built-in. Meaning "to burn," this name comes from the Middle High German word brennen. Though today's connotations with burning are more closely related to a fierce longing, it's likely the original purpose of this word was far less poetic. It was a name of utility, describing a person who distilled spirits, burned charcoal or lime, or cleared forests with controlled fire.
