lansing Early Origins



The surname lansing was first found in Saxony, where the name contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation which would later play a large role in the tribal and national conflicts of the area. In later years the name branched into many houses, each playing a significant role in the local social and political affairs. The name lansing, like many surnames, began as a personal name (before surname usage began). Lanzo means "land" or "nation," which suggests that the name is probably a shortened form of some other name which contains that element.
