Amundson History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origin of the distinguished Amundson family can be traced to the rugged Scandinavian country of Norway. The surname Amundson is derived from the Scandinavian personal name Aghmund. This comes from the Germanic name Agi-mund, which in turn is derived from the Old Icelandic name Ogmundr, which signifies awe-protection. However, the name is also occasionally derived from the Old Norse names Hamundr, which means high protection, or Amundr, which means ancestor protection or forever guardian.
