褐 is the most simple way to express brown in Chinese. It also means brown in Japanese but this character is not often written alone in Japanese (they would tend to write 褐色 (brown color) to refer to brown, or the color of tanned skin.
In some context, this can refer to gray or a dark color, or coarse hemp cloth.
In Buddhist context, it can refer to a coarse serge (cheaply sewn clothing) hence poverty.
Note: In Taiwanese Mandarin, this is spoken with the 2nd or rising tone instead of the 4th or falling tone used in the mainland.
ブラウン is the name Brown written in Katakana (phonetic Japanese). Please note: This sounds like the English word brown using Japanese pronunciation. It does not mean the color brown at all in Japanese.
Note: Because this title is entirely Japanese Katakana , it should be written by a Japanese calligrapher.
