Etymology[edit]

Several theories exist. Either from Byzantine Greek βροντησίον (brontēsíon) (11th cent.), 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].
