I doubt this is true, there are no other sources backing it up. Also, from where should this second surname come from? His mother?
'Swierenga' sounds like a very Dutch surname, I have the suspicion a fellow Dutchman is having a laugh here.

I'm not saying it is impossible that Mr Quinn has or had a double surname, but I find it rather unlikely.

Many actors either change their names or don't use their real last names, it's not as uncommon as you would believe.

There are, actually: http://names.whitepages.com/Brandon/Swierenga

Considering that Brandon's originally from Colorado, and Burbank seems like a completely appropriate place for a working actor to be holed up, I have no problem believing this is true.

Oh, and there's this -- http://www.facebook.com/brandonswierenga

the white pages only proof there are Brandon swierenga's out there, the facebook page, however, leaves little room for doubt.

unless where dealing with an imposter, but that's too far-fetched.

I can quite see why you want to change from Swierenga to Quinn. sounds cooler, and you don't have to spell you surname all the time.

Edit:

speaking of far-fetched: There is a fairly well-known Dutch author named Tommy Wieringa. The surname looks rather similar, but besides that and of course "Tommy" there's no further resemblance between the two of them. as you can see:


second edit:
So, are we going to refer to Brandon Swierenga from now on? Or Brandon Quinn-Swierenga? or just stick to Quinn?

It's Quinn, because that's his professional name. Really, stop being purposely obtuse.

Ignorant? perhaps I am, yes. Maybe it was obvious. Sorry if it looks like I'm asking for the sake of asking.

But doing it on purpose? Hell no.
