An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Davidsen surname derives from the name of the biblical king David, whose name originally meant "beloved" in Hebrew. The name began to spread among Christians throughout Europe in the Middle Ages. Variations of David are especially popular in Wales, as it is the name of the Patron Saint. The suffixes "sen," "son," et c. mean 'son of' and show that the name was patronymic.

Davidsen Early Origins



The surname Davidsen was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
