Where did the Norwegian larsen family come from? What is the Norwegian larsen family crest and coat of arms? When did the larsen family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the larsen family history?

The origin of the distinguished larsen family can be traced to the rugged Scandinavian country of Norway. The surname larsen is derived from the personal name Lars, which is a pet form of the name Lawrence. This name is in turn derived from the Latin name Laurentius, which literally means man from Laurentium, a town in Italy named for its laurels or bay trees. The popularity of this name in medieval Europe is due to the exploits of a saint who was martyred at Rome in the 3rd century. The suffix -sen and its variants are translatable as son of.
