A (p-)brane is a dynamically evolving physical object that generalizes the notion of a point particle to (p) higher dimensions. A point particle can be viewed as a brane of dimension zero, a string as a brane of dimension one, and a membrane (sheet) as a brane of dimension two. Do not use for particles or strings, however, unless in comparative juxtapositions.
