Search Etymological origin of Italian surnames


Brenna has a nucleus between Milan, Varese and Como, a stock in Rome and one in Rionero in Vulture in the Potenza area, both Brenni and Brenno seem almost unique, they should derive from toponyms such as Brenna in the Como area or Brenno Useria in the Varese area, they could also derive from the Celtic name Brennus, which means head, we recall the unfortunately famous: "Brennus rex Gallorum, here apud Senonas urbem regnabat, cum trecentis milibus Gallorum Senonum ad Italiam venit eamque usque to Senogalliam, quae to Gallis Senonibus vocitata est, occupavit ...." , but a possible derivation from the archaic dialectal term brenna (rastrelliera, greppia, where the hay is placed for animals) cannot be excluded.
