The roots of the distinguished German surname Hagendorn can be traced back to the region of Brunswick, now the modern state of Lower Saxony. The name means "hawthorn," and was likely first borne by someone whose home was located close to a thorny bush. Alternatively, there are several cities in the region named Hagendorn; it is possible that the name was given as a surname to designate someone hailing from Hagendorn.
