Origins Available: German-Alt, German


The surname Bruningher is a ancient German name that originated in the Rhineland. While the Germans at first used only one name, population increases created confusion among people of the same name, forcing them to adopt hereditary surnames. Two common types of German names are patronymic names, taken from the given name of the father, and metronymic names, taken from the name of the mother. Bruningher was derived from the baptismal name for the son of Bruno, which was originally derived from the Old German word bruen, which means brown.

Bruningher Early Origins



The surname Bruningher was first found in the Rhineland, where the name Breuning contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation, and later played a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. Over time, the family name branched into many houses, where members continued to play a significant role in the local social and political affairs.
