Origins Available: German, Norwegian, Swedish


Schleswig-Holstein, which is the northernmost state in western Germany, is the homeland of the proud surname Carlsson. German surnames developed at a time when most of Schleswig, and most of the German provinces, were states of the Holy Roman Empire. At first people used only a single name, but as the population grew and people began to travel, they began to find it necessary to take on an additional name to differentiate themselves. Fairly general principles guided the development of hereditary surnames in Schleswig. Two of the common types of family names found in the Schleswig are patronymic surnames, which are derived from the father's given name, and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the mother's given name. The surname Carlsson derived from the Old German personal name Karl, which is derived from the Middle Latin word "carolus," which refers to an adult male.

Carlsson Early Origins



The surname Carlsson was first found in Schleswig-Holstein, where the family rose to prominence early in the mediaeval era. From the 13th century the surname was identified with the great social and economic evolution which made this territory a landmark contributor to the development of the nation.
