Name Meaning

Some characteristic forenames: Scandinavian Erik, Anders, Lars, Nils, Thor, Iver, Nels, Obert, Berger, Einer, Knute, Morten.

Scandinavian, German, and English: topographic name for someone who lived by a grove, Old Norse lundr; the word was adopted into northern dialects of Middle English and also into Anglo-Norman French. There are a number of places in England named with this word, as for example Lund in Lancashire, East Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire, Lunt in Merseyside, and Lound in Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Suffolk, and the surname may derive from any of these. As a Swedish surname it is probably most often ornamental.

German: habitational name from any of the places called Lund or Lunden in Schleswig-Holstein.
