The rich and ancient history of the Hagadorn family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from the baptismal name for the son of Agace. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.
