Brandon derives from two old English elements: ‘BROM,’ which means ‘broom or brushwood,’ and ‘Dun,’ which means ‘Hill,’ which give the name its meaning. It is also an Anglicized form of the Irish given name ‘Brénainn,’ which means ‘Prince’ in English.

Simply refer to them by the first syllable of their given name, which may not be particularly distinctive, but is effective. There are a plethora of options.
Consider the characteristics that distinguish the Brandon. Was it his weary eyes or his clothing that he was most well-known for? If he appears to be perpetually exhausted, then use the specific name for it. If he always appears to be getting ready for fight you might refer to her as Warrier. To avoid creating an offensive nickname, use caution while brainstorming ideas for nicknames.
