landen Early Origins



The surname landen was first found in Switzerland, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Chronicles suggest that the name did not always mean "von dem Land," that is "from the country-side," but, could also be either the mediaeval form of "Latte" (a crossbar) or refer to a boat landing.
