Maybe these two English names can help:

BRANDON dweller at the beacon hill.

BRANDT farmer on land cleared by burning.

Often the 't' and the 'd' are interchangeable ... if I had to guess, I'd say it means something like "town at the top of a hill" or perhaps "town that was founded on land cleared by burning" ...just a guess ...
