The surname Fresenius is name that may have a few different sources. In some instances it is derived from the name of the region of Friesland, and would refer to someone who came from that region. Friesland is located on the coast of the North Sea, and stretches from the Netherlands in the east to Denmark in the north. In the Swabian-Swiss dialects, the word "friesen" means "to dig ditches," and the name may have derived from the occupation of its original bearer.
