1. A surname of Dionysus, which some explain by saying, that he was born during a storm of thunder and lightning (Diod. iv. 5; Dion Chrys. Or. 27); others derive it from the nymph Brome, or from the noise of the Bacchantic processions, whence the verb bromeazesthai, to rage like a Bacchant (Ov. Met. iv. 11; Orph. Lith. xviii. 77.)

2. There is also a mythical personage of this name. (Apollod. ii. 1. § 5.)
