The origin of the name of Brunant is disputed by scholars and historians and no definitive conclusion has been reached. The name was indeed given to the country by first leader Marten Sneijder; he lived in a town called Brunant and it is likely that the name was after the town he founded.

Brunant was known in the Arab period as Burzand, named after Brezonde, and in the Barzuna language was named Barzona, and these names formed the root for the Dutch names 'Brunant' and 'Brezonde'.

The Arabic name 'Burzand' literally means "Port Zand", as Brezonde was a port city known as 'Zand' in its early history.
