An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancient and distinguished name Denmark comes from the Old English word "denich," which means "Danish"; the name was originally for an immigrant from Denmark. There were many Danes throughout England in the Middle Ages, especially the long-established settlers of the Danelaw region. Some bearers of "Dennis" come from these Danish roots, while others are of Norman stock. The more recent variation "Denmark" probably refers to a new Danish immigrant.
