EtymologyEdit

Several theories exist. Either from Byzantine Greek βροντησίον (brontēsíon) (11th century), presumably from Βρεντήσιον (Brentḗsion, Brindisi), known for the manufacture of bronze,[1] or perhaps through a Vulgar Latin *aes brundusi(um),[2][3] from the name of the same city. Alternatively, ultimately from Persian برنج(birinj, biranj, brass) ~ پرنگ(piring, copper),[4] or from a Latin brundium, linked to the aforementioned Persian word.[5] Less likely linked to Germanic through a Late or Vulgar Latin *brunitius, related to bruno (brown).[6]
