Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn: Rembrandt comes from ground form Reinbrand and is composed of regin indeed 'advise' and brand 'flaming (sword)'. What does that mean? Fiery advise?
Harmenszoon means son of Harmen
van Rijn means From Rhine, as Rembrandt was born in Leiden, a city thorugh which the Old and New Rhine flow, his family probably lived nearby.
