If Polish, then Brazanna = Anna Braz or Brąz from bronz "bronze."
If German, then Stahlheber = Heber Stahl: Heber is a Biblical name; Stahl means "steel" in German.
Two metallic names in Polish and German?

Any Polish and German surname can be Jewish. Roman Polański is Polish, but also Jewish and French. Currently, 3039 Polańskis live in Poland and 123 Polanskis live in Germany. Can you deduce from their name alone that they are Jewish, Polish, German and/or French? No.

Never met a Jew with either of those family names.
