Jacob's father would have been Gudbrand.

Jacob would "Gudbrandsen" (Gudbrand's son). Braaten would have been the farm or location they came from.

Norwegian: habitational name from Bråten, a common farm name in southeastern Norway, derived from Old Norse broti ‘land cleared for cultivation by burning’.
