Andersen Genealogy & History

Andersen is a Scandinavian patronymic surname, meaning son of Anders. Derived from the Greek name "Andreas", meaning manly, Anders is so popular that November 30th is its "name day" on the Scandinavian calendar. Although the name has pre-Christian Greek origins, its popularity soared during Scandinavia's "Northern Crusades" (1100s), when parents named children after Christian saints, especially after Andrew, the first of Jesus' disciples. Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875), the famous Danish children's storyteller, stands out in Andersen family history. For Andersen genealogy in America, it should be noted that the Scandinavian forms of Andersson and Andersen were often Americanized to Anderson by immigrants.
