In some cases, however, a connection with toponymy cannot be excluded, considering that in Italy there are several toponyms containing the root brun- (especially in the north). In conclusion, therefore, we are dealing with the surnames of personal names of the founders, even if in some cases a derivation from a nickname (sometimes connected with the national toponymy) is not excluded.
