The surname in its more common variation of Brown is a very common name and would normally refer to the colour. The name’s connection with the Celts may possibly be derived from ‘brehon’ a name for a judge in ancient Celtic society.
Early records of the name in Scotland come from 1128 when Sir David Le Brun was witness to the foundations of Holyrood Abbey.
