The roots of the distinguished German surname Haghedorn 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 Haghedorn; it is possible that the name was given as a surname to designate someone hailing from Haghedorn.

Haghedorn Early Origins



The surname Haghedorn was first found in northern Germany, where it was a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. The roots of the Haghedorn family have been traced back to the regions of Brunswick and Schleswig-Holstein, where the earliest records of the name have been found.
