    Name Meaning

    Norwegian and Danish: patronymic from the personal name Olaf, from Old Norse Óláfr, Ólafr, variant Óleifr, earlier Anleifr, from proto-Scandinavian elements meaning ‘ancestor’ + ‘heir, descendant’. Olaf (also Olav, in Sweden Olof) has always been one of the most common Scandinavian names; it continued to be popular in the Middle Ages, in part as a result of the fame of Saint Olaf, King of Norway, who brought Christianity to his country c. 1030. This surname is rare in Denmark. Compare Olafson .
