The colorful history of Germany provides a glimpse at the oldest origins of the Arens family. In the medieval era, the German lands were inhabited by a variety of Barbarian tribes. The ancient dukedom of Saxony derived its name from the Germanic tribe name the Saxons who inhabited the territory after the fall of the Roman Empire.

Arens Early Origins



The surname Arens was first found in Saxony, where the family was well established by the Middle Ages. The name originated in the central German regions as a variation of the southern German "Arndt" and the northern German "Arnold." Early records show the name in Hamburg around the year 900.
