Burnell is a name of French and English origin, meaning “brown.” Traditionally given to boys, it dates back to the Anglo-Saxon era, when the word brun was much trendier than its modern equivalent. There are many reasons to choose a name inspired by brown. But if you simply love what it reminds you of—fall, forests, or maybe even your morning coffee—cocoa-colored Burnell is the name to beat.
