Does anyone know anything about the history of this name and what it means? It is my last name. My family changed from Berg to Bromstad when they came to North America from Norway. Bromstad was the farm or area or parish or someting where they lived in Norway. I want to know where it comes from before this, because I know of many other people with this name and I doubt they all came from the same farm. Thanks.

Hi Mack,

Bromstad is a quite common place name in Norway. "Brom" means bud, something which sticks out, and "stad" means site, place, town.
