Answer to no. 2. Probably a matronym, that is a name for a maternal
ancestor. Brayne is a female name in Yiddish (means brown) so Brainin would
be ">from the family of Brayne." There was a famous writer named Reuven
Brainin.

Subject: [ukraine] Searching: HORETZKY and BRAININ


I am new to this site and would be appreciative if someone could answer the
following two questions:

1. Roots, history, and origin of any family member of the last name
HORETZKY(please only this spelling!).

2. Meaning and origin of the last name BRAININ.

Thank you for each clue and contribution.

Best regards,

Bo Brainin
