Brehntano Early Origins



The surname Brehntano was first found in Austria, where the name became noted for its many branches, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. In their later history the family became a power unto themselves and was elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family. The name is actually Italian in origin, and comes from the river Brenta in northern Italy; bearers of the Brentano name moved northwards to Austria and Bavaria in the 18th century.

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: In fortitudine prudentia
Motto Translation: The strength of wisdom
