Danish surnames

  Most Danish last names are based on patronymics. Until the 1820s, it was common for ordinary people to use the Christian name of a person’s father, followed by “sen” (=son) or “datter” (=daughter) to create the surname. Nielsen for example is a patronymic surname meaning “son of Niels” and ranked first among all common surnames in Denmark as of January 2019.
