in most cases -den means "valley".
When the suffix originally was -don instead of -den (Brandon - Branden), it means "hill"
Sometimes, when the names are forms of Old Norse names (e.g. Old English Alden from Old Norse Halvdan or Old English Denby from Old Norse Danby), the suffix/prefix means "Dane".
