Origins Available: English, German


It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Arnesen was formed. The name was derived from the personal name Agnes, which itself is derived from the Greek name Hagne, which means pure and holy. The name was also used in the Latin phrase Agnus Dei, which means lamb of God. The personal name Agnes was popularized by devotees, the early Christian martyr, Saint Agnes.

Arnesen Early Origins



The surname Arnesen was first found in the English midlands county of Nottinghamshire from very ancient times, where the family name held vast estates and were an important contribution to the early life and times of the county. They are recorded in the Domesday Book as holding lands and manors. The Domesday Book was compiled by Duke William in the year 1086 A.D.

Arnesen Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Arnesen include Anniss, Anness, Arness, Annison, Arnison, Annes and many more.
