Origin: Gaelic

Meaning: from Irish surname Mac Branain meaning "descendant of Bran", the latter meaning "raven"  in Irish and Welsh.

It could also come from another Irish surname, O Braondin deriving from the word braon possibly meaning "sorrow" though I've also seen listed as being a variant spelling of Brennan meaning "rain, moisture, drop".
