The surname Arends was first found in Bavaria, where the family was anciently associated with the political and religious conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. The family established numerous branches as family members acquired manors and estates in surrounding regions, where they contributed to the prosperity of their society. The name originated in the central German regions as a variation of the southern German "Arndt" and the northern German "Arnold."

Spelling variations of this family name include: Ahrends, Ahrens, Arens, Ahren, Aren, Ahrren, Ahrrens, Ahrenz and many more.
