Brokar Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime.

Known variations of the Brokar family name include Broker, Brokar, Brokor, Brokour, Brocker, Brooker and many more.
