As a child In the SCA I had a mentor whose name was Brandywine and I loved her so much. I also loved the way it rolls off the tongue and how boys flock to that name.

There are several places in the USA called Brandywine. At least the ones on the east coast probably originally get their names from Dutch brandeweijn meaning "brandy or gin" or from the surname Brainwende, Brandwyn or Brandwin. In J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings series, the Brandywine is the name of the fourth longest river in Middle Earth, also known as the Baranduin.
