Just wondering if anyone has ever seen or heard of Brandt having a last name, in any of the versions of the screenplay, etc.

Thankee.

Not that I know of. He's just Brandt. But you can check for yourself.

The only two theories I have heard is that it might be "LaJoya." "Brandt LaJoya." The theory is that the Big Lebowski's trophy wife, "Bunny Lebowski" borrowed Brandt's last name of "LaJoya" and used it for her porn actress alter ego, "Bunny LaJoya."

The other theory I have seen around is that he, Brandt, is related to the Big Lebowski and his last name is also Lebowski; "Brandt Lebowski." This theory makes more sense as Brandt could be a relative working for the Big Lebowski.

Amazing what a flashback will reveal.   ;D

I thought Brandt was his last name.

Much in the British tradition of calling your butler by their last name.

As in Hudson in Upstairs Downstairs whose name was Angus Hudson, even though almost every other member of staff was known by their first name he was known by his last.

Yeah, that's a good one too. A worthy theory, m5.
