Two spellings circulate, "Brunhozinho" and "Brunhosinho" - these two sound the same for 200,000,000 Portuguese speakers worldwide, but the small minority of speakers, whose dialect does distinguish between [z?] and [z] inhabits mostly the broad area, northern inland Portugal, where this village is located. As said, the toponym stems from "brunho", meaning "damson" (also "sloe" or "blackthorn""), less frequent than its derivative "abrunho" (in turn more often than its own derivative "cabrunho" Depending on the exact etimology of the toponym, each of the two possible spellings may be right and the other wrong: "brunho" + "zinho" is a small blackthorn fruit, while "brunh[o]" + "os[o]" + "inho" is a small blackthorn grove. Given that meaning and the existence of a nearby village named after a non-hypochoristic equivalent, Brunhoso (and such paired toponyms being usual in Portugal), the latter spelling, with "s", is more likely - yet the symbols law above and local use prefer the form with a "z".
