    Name Meaning

    Some characteristic forenames: Scandinavian Nils, Anders, Thor.

    Swedish: ornamental name from sand ‘sand’ + the suffix -ell, a derivative of the Latin adjectival ending -elius. The original humanistic form of the surname, Sandelius, is still common in Sweden.

    English: from Middle English sand ‘sand’ + hil(le), hul(le) ‘hill’ or helde, hilde, hulde ‘slope’. The surname may be topographic, for someone who lived on or near a sandy hill or sandy slope, or habitational, from a place so named, such as Sandhill, in Worth (Sussex) or Sandhill, in East Grinstead (Sussex).
