Origen: Normando, Escocés. In most instances, the Broughan family name came to England with the Norman Conquest of England of 1066. Deriving from the Old French, Middle English "brun," it was originally a nickname for someone who may have had brown hair, brown eyes, or perhaps even dressed habitually in brown. It is also possible that some instances of the name in Britain derived from a short form of an Old English personal name of Germanic roots, such as Brunwine or Brungar. First found in Cumberland, where the Broughan family was seated from very early times, having been granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Variantes: Broughan, Brown, Broun, Brun y otros.
