Etymology

Pulau Brani, Singapore

Pulau Brani is relatively nearer to both the Singapore city centre and the Port of Singapore.

Brani Road was named after Pulau Brani, one of the 63 islands within the Republic of Singapore. Pulau Brani is located between the southern coast of Singapore and the famous Sentosa Island, near Keppel Harbour.

Although Pulau Brani took its name from the Malay word Berani, meaning brave, the island is still spelled as Pulau Brani, hence the spelling of Brani Road.
