Hansen Genealogy & History

Hansen is a metonymic/patronymic European surname. Patronymically it is derived from "Hann", the German-Flemish shortened version of Johann, itself derived from the Hebrew "Yochanan", meaning God favored me with a son. Metonymically it is also derived from "Hann" a shortened version of Hannah, the mother of prophet Samuel. Biblical names became popular during the Crusades in the 11th and 12th centuries, and Hansen family history traces back to this time throughout Europe. The Hansen spelling indicates a Danish/Norwegian heritage and Hanson a Swedish/English one. The first Hansen emigrated to New Jersey in 1640, but (especially in America) Hansen genealogy is closely tied to that of Hanson.
