Brabazon Name Meaning

English and French: from Anglo-Norman French brabançon. This was originally an ethnic term for a native of the duchy of Brabant (see Brabant). By the 13th century it had passed into generic use as an occupational name for a mercenary, specifically a member of one of the more or less independent marauding bands of mercenaries, noted for their lawlessness and cruelty. These originated in Brabant and Flanders, but in the course of time accepted recruits from anywhere.
